This song is from the album Goodbye and Hello and there's an acoustic version on the double live album Dream Letter. The song has a 3/4-beat and a "|" represents a measure mark. Just strum the acoustic and let your voice sing like Tim's and it will sound like....?! You could try to incorporate the harmonica solo in your guitar playing or maybe whistle that part if you can't play the harmonica (I can't). Corrections to the transcription welcomed.
