There is a lot of percussion and tapping used, definetly refer to the video, and her 
www.myspace.com/kakiking, has her playing this song live, the tuning is CGCGAD, which is 
with the lower 3 string down one whole step.  She uses acrylic nails on her right hand,
so it may not sound 100% correct. Remember the whole song is played with her left hand
over top of the neck.  I did not put the song in order, but you should be able to figure
that out.

Intro: she uses only her thumb and index finger with her right hand to keep the pattern 
she also keeps the strings palm mutted and simply plays the string open. she also

taps on the front of the guitar, I'll Use D to represent the Drum/Thump Part.  The 
is not really shown, but refer to the video
						Repeat

C-9-x---D-x---7-x---D-x---9-x---D-x---7-x---12-x----|------|

First Strumming Pattern:  Palm Mutted the Whole Time, Timing is Not Shown. She  Bars the
with her Index Finger, and using her middle finger on certain beats completes the bar.

*Middle Finger of left hand Extended to complete Bar, Notes are Mutted however

**Repeat Here and End with hitting the  neck of the guitar over the 12 fret With Right Hand
	 *                                                      **

Chorus: Not Palm Mutted, timing not shown
*Use ring finger/pinky to reach notes

**Tap with right hand over neck

***2nd Time She Plays This Chord Instead of the 999777
         *                          **                              ***

Cont.: Not 100% sure of patten that is fingerpicked but the notes should be correct, timing not shown

*Pattern may include this at some points
                                                                         *

C--5-----0-----2/3-----6-----9-----0-5/7-----0-----2/3-----6-----9-----|---|

Cont.: The Tapping Has really odd timing, Everything is tapped, the notes look like 
but she simply taps them and hold them with her left hand, (watch the video) she uses
the of extending her middle finger on her left hand as well, a lot of the notes she
taps with her right hand she simply pulls off to open strings, so the 0 are simply the
pull off.

T-Tapped with extended middle finger of left hand

C---t5---------t2---------t5------------------|------|

Bridge: Again not 100% sure of the fingerpicking pattern, the notes are correct, the 
of the notes are harmonics, watch the video to see how she positions her hand, the whole 
her left hand is over the top of the neck

D----------------|--|----------------|--|------------|---|
A------------|--|------------|--|---------|---|
G------------|4x|------------|4x|---------|4x-|
C------------|--|------------|--|---------|---|
G----14----------|--|----10----------|--|---5--------|---|

|Open Notes

|---------|2x|-------0-|2x----------|------|
|---------|--|-----0---|------------|------|
|---7--------|--|---7-----|------------|------|
|-7----------|--|-7-------|------------|------|

Cont.: She then just fingerpicks this, again not sure of the pattern, she uses her index 
of her left hand to bar the top 3 strings, she slides to all the notes

D---------|--|-------------|--|---------|--|
A-----0---|--|--------0----|--|-----0---|--|
G-------0-|4x|-----------0-|4x|-------0-|2x|
C-----2---|--|-------10----|--|-----5---|--|

|----------------0-----0--|------|
|-------10---------5--12--|----------|
|----10------5--------12--|----------|
|-10-------5----------12--|----------|

That I believe is the whole song, she of course adds a little flair here and there, so 
free to do so as well, I believe that this is still in need of some fine tuning so Please 
Me, Mike Vargas, at [email protected], If you have any comments or suggestions, thank you.
