This song has two guitars in it, I believe.  Either that, or it is a
mandolin.  We'll just pretend it's a second guitar.  The second guitar
basically is just playing the low end strings lightly (or not at all,
not sure) until the second verse, when it picks up more in the high end.
if you don't understand, that's okay, just play light @ first on 2nd
guitar, then not-so-light.
p.s.— the guitars are always played simultaneously
