This is a guitar transcription that includes the melody. As a lot of Elliott
Smith?s songs feature lots
of separate guitars and vocals, I tried to make this version contain as much as possible on one
guitar.
The picking pattern is easier to figure out if you separate it into the bass
notes, which start 3 2 3 2
on the A and D strings, and the melody which is all the other notes.
