a few points of interest..the part of the song immediately before
and after the solo where the chords are played C G C G C
you will hear what sounds like a slide so I play it like this

So basically you slide the C position towards the
G barred Chord to get that slide sound..the fingering isnt
in the same form so youll have to change position fairly fast
Also..any point in the song where he goes from an F to a Dm
There are two notes you hit in between these chords
youll notice where on the song when you hear it..its around
the part where he sings "I've been"

So that's basically it..pretty easy song but oh so good
