    Ok. So I learned how to play boy with a coin but It is the studio version... I love the acoustic version that Sam Bean plays during this show... But i can't figure out the tab for it.  Its my girl friends favorite song and I want to learn it by Feb. 14th... It is just such a cool sound and It seems more difficult than the studio version...  Thanks for the help...

Thanks... I was hoping that was all... I love that solo too.

I'm a moron.

Cmaj7 - X32000

Enjoy!

Ah...nevermind. I see the version you're referring to. http://digital.othermusic.com/wp/?p=829

Well, he's using the capo on the 2nd fret. It sounds like he's alternating between Cmaj7 and Em chord shapes:

Cmaj7 - X23000
Em - 022000

If you watch the video of Sam playing it, pay attention to the finger-picking pattern. It's pretty simple.
