Here's the late Jim Croce's Time In A Bottle. This is a great song to cut 
your "fingerpicking" teeth on. The intro is actually two guitars, so I did my 
best to put the two parts together. Any questions or comments are welcome. 
Enjoy.

I like this tab for Time In A Bottle. It has nice feel. I posted our two guitar arrangement of this song. I didn't have a decent solo fingerpicking arrangement worked out but now I don't have to I'll use yours. Thanks.
