Please Note: You can play E instead of E(add2), although it does add a nice touch.

             For some of you, it may be easier especially if you are finger-picking 
             to play in A Major with chords A, E, F#m7, D. If you are playing with 
             the video, you will need to place a capo on the 2nd fret.
