N.B. Alun plays harmonics on the first 4 bars while Cat plays the Bouzouki style
intro riff.
Intro:
[(G)] [(D7)] [(G)] [(G)] [(D7)] [(G)]  
 
 E |-----------------------|---------------------------|
 B |-----------------------|---------------------------|
 G |---12*---------12*-----|---12*-----------12*-------|
 D |--------12*------------|---------------------------|
 A |-----------------------|---------------------------|

(* Harmonics)
[(G)] [(D7)] [(G)] [(G)] [(D7)] [(G)]  
 
 E |-----------------------|---------------------------|
 B |-----------------------|---------------------------|
 G |---12*---------12*-----|---12*-----------12*-------|
 D |-----------------------|---------------------------|
 A |-----------------------|---------------------------|
 E |-----------------------|---------------------------|

(* Harmonics)
In the breaks and also verses 1, 4, 7 and 10, Alun fingerpicks a quick G to G4 pattern
(shown below), throughout the whole of these verses,and also whenever Cat is playing
the G to D7 pattern, at the end of all the other verses.
Play the G chord shape and then add the suspended 4th with the little finger.
Use the Thumb to pick the D & G strings,and Ring/Middle fingers to pick the B & E
strings.
[G] [G4] [G]  
 
 E|--------3--------3--------3-----|
 B|----3--------3--------3-----3---|
 G|------4--------5--------4-----4-|
 D|--5--------5--------5-----------|
 A|--------------------------------|
 E|--------------------------------|

In verses 2 & 3, 5 & 6, 8 & 9, and 10 to 12, Alun uses the same style picking
moved up to a C chord:
[C] [C4] [C]  
 
 E |----------8-----------8----------8---|
 B |-----8----------8-----------8--------|
 G |--------9----------10----------9-----| (x3)
 D |--10---------10----------10----------|
 A |-------------------------------------|
 E |-------------------------------------|

Then this bar is a link:
[Am] [D7]  
 
 E |--------------5-----------------5----|
 B |-------5-----------------7-----------|
 G |-----------5----------------5--------|
 D |----7----------------7---------------|
 A |-------------------------------------|
 E |-------------------------------------|

Then back to the G to G4 picking pattern...
