Always loved this song. I had a bit of trouble with the key and the chords! I decided
Capo should be on fret 1.. it sounds alrightish. It's the closest you can get anyway!
I know it may look a bit simple.. but there's not a lot more to it than this! I do a few
hammer ons and stuff to jazz it up, but that's optional, make it what you want.
BAGPIPES:
