The structure of this song is very simple: Intro - Verse 1 - Verse 2 - Bridge - 
Verse 3.

The intro is mainly played in a very quick finger-picking style, except for the 
last part, which is played by strumming the chords and accentuating the bass 
lines with your thumb. 

The rest of the song is played in the same style as the last part of the intro. 

Beneath the tab I have put symbols for which fingers to use to pick the notes 
tabbed. The symbol on top is the one for the highest note of course. These are 
suggestions 'cause you might want to use other fingers, but these are the ones I 
use myself.

t = thumb
i = index finger
m = middle finger
r = ring finger
v = stroke down (use index finger)
^ = stroke up (use thumb)

Verses:

To vary the stroking of the hight strings a bit, don't stroke the exact same 
strings each time when going up and down. I tabbed the same notes to stroke in 
each chord shape, to make it easier to understand and to remember.

Verse 1 and 2 are identical, verse 3 has a few small variations which are
noted on the right side.

About the artist behind Angeles Tab:

Steven Paul "Elliott" Smith (August 6, 1969 – October 21, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter and musician. Smith was born in Omaha, Nebraska, raised primarily in Texas, and resided for a significant portion of his life in Portland, Oregon, where he first gained popularity. His primary instrument was the guitar, but he was also proficient at piano, clarinet, bass, drums and harmonica. Smith had a distinctive vocal style characterized by his "whispery, spiderweb-thin delivery"[1] and use of multi-tracking to create vocal harmonies.

After playing in the rock band Heatmiser for several years, Smith began his solo career in 1994 with releases on the independent record labels Cavity Search and Kill Rock Stars. In 1997 he signed a contract with DreamWorks Records, for which he recorded two albums. Smith rose to mainstream prominence when his song "Miss Misery", included in the soundtrack for the film Good Will Hunting, was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Original Song category in 1997.

Smith battled with depression, alcoholism and drug addiction for years, and these topics often appeared in his lyrics. At age 34, he died in Los Angeles, California from two stab wounds to the chest.[2] The autopsy evidence was inconclusive as to whether the wounds were self-inflicted.[3] At the time of his death, Smith was working on his sixth studio album, From a Basement on the Hill, which was released posthumously on October 19, 2004.
