I heard this song and thought it would be a really cool song to finger pick. So
I looked around on CGR and I couldn't find it. So, I did it myself. I tried very 
hard to make the tab as clean as possible. Hope you like it.

Perfomance Notes: all notes (except bass notes) are 1/8ths unless there is 
a Q, H or W underneath the tab. The bass notes are usually 1/4 and on 
occasion 1/2s. The easiest way to play it is just to go with the flow. 
The picking pattern is easy. The tab is layed out so that each "-" between 
notes(i.e. 4-4) represents an 1/8th. Therefore, "4--4" would represent a 1/4th.
 Just let the bass notes ring naturally when playing.

Q = Quarter H = Half W = Whole

The song has two parts. On verses 2 and 3 you continue on into the second part.
 Like this.
	v.1 A
	v.2 A->B
	v.3 A->B
	v.4 A

The two parts are denoted by (A) and (B) in the tab.

Part B is where it gets fun. This part just begs to be played with a more 
complex picking pattern. I just use a basic Travis Picking pattern for the 
second part of these verses. I didn't write it in this score because I couldn't
 figure out how to get the timing right. It's a great addition because it 
breaks up the monotony of playing the whole thing the same old way. If you 
can't figure it out you can just play it how it is written. You can listen to 
an mp3 of me playing(hacking at) the second part to get an idea how it should 
The Powertab file that I made originally for this song is posted in the 
PowerTab forum in a thread called "David Meece - One Small Child powertab".

Have fun.
