 I'll Be lessons Tabs too difficult? Try these video lessons and learn fast
 
                In the song, there may be slight variations to the picking pattern here and there, but 
this tab is quite accurate.

I know this tab may look daunting but it's really not that difficult.
Get familiar with the hand positions first and the rest will be easier.

I also recommend learning this on an electric first, unless you want cramps in your fret hand.

I'm positive there are no mistakes but if you think otherwise you
