This is a beautiful song. I hope you like this arrangement. Note the time signature and High G tuning. I don’t think I used the first string so those of you in standard C6 can ignore the top line of the tab.

Think of it in 3/4 or 6/8.
This is my bar position sheet. The fret numbers under the chords give an elementary approach to playing a simple accompaniment if you are singing. The positions tab is NOT in the order of the chord progression. Please experiment with the alternate chord positions to create accompaniment variations.
I have a backing track to play it to with a sample on my first CD. I hope to work on my book this summer.
This is a work on progress. Please try it out and let me know what you think. I’ll make a video demo once it’s done. This is similar to what I played on my first CD, Probably better because I was really a beginner then.
I adapted my standard C6 tuning with a high G. I use an 8 string and add a few notes on my 7th string when I play it but I tabbed this for 6 string and it will give you all you need.
Just tune the lower G string ( my 5th string) down a half step to F# and you have the essence of the B11 tuning but 3 frets higher. This should get you started on the locations to get a sweet sound. Enjoy and let me know how it goes. I have a backing track for it too. Aloha, Joel
