You hit it right on the dot...but I'm pretty sure Sean uses a capo
at the 4th fret. It makes it hella easier. Just transcribe the
notes to be relative to the 4th fret.
The progression is then Dsus2, G, Bm, A

excellent tabbing. one of the best i've found so far. most of the songs on this site
or chords only. and a lot of those are wrong. love to see some actual tab. thanx.

Just responded a sec ago, and now realized that it is a great tab and mostly correct except
the 11-9 pulloff should be on the B string not the E. Probably a typo.

Thanks for tabbin this out! I am no expert, just a novice, but it really is easier with the capo. Though, it's nice to know both ways.
-Truthscape | 4/20/2004
If a capo is not used then it is very
likely they have tuned the guitar down a half step - a technique often used in blue grass.

good job on the tab, though it's a little bit easier to play if you capo4. only one thing I think sean does differently though..

in the intro, where you have pre>e---11--9--/pre>
it should be:
pre>
e---6-4---
b---7-7---
/pre>
not sure if that will come out right.. but you can get the idea.
-ssmithm | 2/23/2005
You clearly get the best effect and plays the easiest with capo on the first fret, played in D! I am sure that that is how Sean plays it
-ukountree | 4/4/2005
This is a horrible site. All you want is money. I wont ever come back here again.
-matmcbrara | 8/29/2005
This tab is really good! I'm still pretty new to playing tabs, but once you get the hang of it, it comes out nicey! Thanks!
