                        This Old Guitar
                          John Denver
The timing of this piece is 4/4: a regular 8 quavers to the bar.
In the tab all notes are 3 characters apart except when there is a
quaver rest (or a barline).  4 bars are repeated 3 times each verse:
these are indicated by a/b/c in the lyric lines.

Also indicated are the fingering used:
i: index
m: middle
r: ring
p: pinky
b: barred (index)

(Of course, you can finger it how you like, but this works for me: its
 basically the way I always finger these chords!).
