"The guitar is just a non-linear piano"
  -- Farmboy

Please refer to the piano score for the actual note names.
Here I present the ASCII tab score


p is a "pull-off". It means the next note does not have to be picked,
you fret it before and release the current note to make it sound,
in a softer way.

h denotes a "hammer-on". It means you have to tap the next note,
without picking its string.

Hammering on and pulling off in succession makes a trill.

_ is a tie. It connects two notes to be played as a single note with
a duration equal to the sum of the individual notes' values.


This is a fingerpicked song, so no pick is used.
Let each chord ring until a chord change.
