Subject: CRD: "The Road To Ensenada" by Lyle Lovett

This one was actually a bit tough to work out, since the guitar part
includes a lot of partial chords that could be interpreted in different
ways.  This arrangement sounds quite nice, though.  I'd advise picking
rather than strumming, to get the spare sound of the recording -- try
experimenting with different picking patterns until you find one you like.
