New Disaster

tuned down a step, capo 5 (or standard capo 3)
high e-string tuned down a full step

this is in 3/4 time and the low notes are played with the thumb while the two high strings are played with the index and middle finger making a very fast triplet.
the high strings are played very softly in comparison to the melody played with the thumb.  this pattern continues throughout the song.
