Iron And Wine - Boy With A Coin Text Guitar Tab

Learn song with the online tabulature player
As an avid Iron and Wine listener and finger picker, I have found the holy grail! This
song is one that I know a ton of you have wanted to play. This is probably the most
tab out there. I don't know what you have read or seen in the past, but this is probably 
most accurate. I rated this song advanced because it requires much finger picking skill
accuracy, plus a natural groove and rhythm. It's also VERY difficult to sing over.

And for the record, if there are ever notes in parentheses, they are optional; I think
makes it a little easier to flow from one part to the next without sounding wrong.

Sam Beam does 4 different finger picking parts:


The Pickup (First 3 Intervals)
Fingering:


e---------|
B--/3-1-0-| Index, Middle, or Ring Finger [I think Middle is Easiest]
G---0-----|
D--/4-2-0-| Thumb
A---------|
E---------|
(when doing this little riff, the Open G isn't necessary)


and then the 3 separate versions of the same thing:

==============Part 1============

"Cmaj Shape"
Chord: Cmaj (pinky on 3rd fret of e String)
Fingering:
   T I T M   R
e------------3------------|
B--------0h1----/3-1-0----|
G----0-----------0--------|
D------2--------/4-2-0----|
A--3----------------------|
E-------------------------|


==========Part 2=============
"Em Shape"
Chord: Em

Fingering:
*RM= Ring or Middle Finger

    T   T *RM  T
e-----------0----------------|
B------------------/3-1-0----|
G-------------------0--------|
D--(2)--2------2---/4-2-0----|
A--(2)-----------------------|
E---0------------------------|

==========Part 3=========
"Alternate Cmaj Shape"
(This one is the hardest)
Fingers:
   T  I  R    M
e--------3p0----------------|
B-------------1---/3-1-0----|
G-----0------------0--------|
D------------(2)---/4-2-0---|
A--3------------------------|
E---------------------------|

Okay, now this is the most difficult part of all---playing them in order.

You start out with the intro, and then play the parts in this order:

(Pickup)...then
1-2-1-2-|
3-2-1-2-|
1-2-3-2-|
1-2-1-2-|
