 PERFORMANCE NOTES______________________________________________________

 For the beginner, the only difficulty besides the chord positions
 will be the rhythm of some of the bars. Between the 2nd and third
 beats is where the second note* of the bar falls. If your tapping
 your foot, it should be played when the foot comes up or on the
 up-beat.
