I've seen many youtube versions of this and they all seem to be different. I remember a fella on here posted his version in the show and tell awhile back. If I could I'd like to know where I could get those tabs. I have no problem paying for them as I believe it's a beautiful arrangement. Thanks!

Paul, have you given Imagine a whirl yet? The very first chord in the song is giving me trouble, not a good sign lol.

:) No - not yet - there is so much material I have promised myself I will look at. Right now I am strictly DADGAD/CGDGAD (and TE is mostly standard or Drop D) and even so I have too much to look at. I am very prone to jumping from piece to piece, so I need to be disiplined!!

Is it the 10 8 11 12 12 12 that's giving trouble? How are you playing the 12th fret harmonics? I wouldn't use my left hand, for those, I'd touch the string with my right index finger and pluck with my right thumb.

That's exactly what's giving me trouble. I never thought of doing the harmonics that way, thanks! I'll give it a shot.

I transcribed this tune a couple months back. I based it off this live performance... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsajLSYRPmM
I changed a few things around but it's essentially note for note.

'Drop D' tuning.

Cheers.

Wow this one is hard to pick up by watching someone cover it and checking out tab. I could really go for a video tutorial :)
