Mark and I are huge fans of the brilliant Tim Minchin! You can play along with the video using the (D) songsheet, but on BUG night we'll likely use the (G) songsheet. A picking pattern that can be pretty in this song is to put your thumb and fingers 1, 2, and 3 on strings 4, 3, 2, 1 and then play string 4, 3, and then pluck string 2 and 1 together, then back to 3.
