[Gmaj7]          [Bm6]           [Am6]          [G2sus4]     [G] [G7sus2] [C] [Bb] [DGDGBD]x00434    [DGDGBD]x44030     [DGDGBD]x22010    [DGDGBD]x00210     [DGDGBD]000000    [DGDGBD]x00203    [DGDGBD]x55555   [DGDGBD]x33333
(The low bass D string is only played at the very end of the song, in the last chord
which gives a very nice effect of relaxation!!)
I've indicated the fingering of the right hand for the intro.
During the rest of the song the thumb (p) always plays the 4th and 5th,
and the three fingers(i,m,a) play 1st, 2nd, and 3rd string.
The time signature is 8/8 (3+3+2) most of the time,
but sometimes changes to 4/4 for one measure (e.g. bar no 2 in the intro)
('H' means Hammer on)
