Now, if you've played a couple of Mr. Rosenberg's songs before, his type of finger-picking
should be known to you, but to make it easier for those of you who are not familiar with it,
I've made a tab of the picking-pattern in the verse. This is actually how Mike plays half(if not
most) of his songs:
