Thumb frets 6th-string
E voicing is E5   keyboard adds third
B~ = Badd4/E  keyboard adds fifth
A~ = Aadd2/E
Alternatives for E and Badd4 provide a fuller sound in the CHORUS.

Missy's live performances reveal voicings different from those
suggested above - the inclusion of the thirds unfortunately
reduces the rather effective contrast in the PRE-CHORUS.

 PRE-CHORUS:                        CHORUS:
   Badd4  Aadd2                        E  Badd4  A   C#m7
E|---0------0---| 8 beats of       E|--0----0----0----4---| Substitute A for

RHYTHM:
Rhumba pattern has accents on  1 2+ 4
This can be counted in eighths as  1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2
Strum the eighths as downstrokes then add the upstrokes to create
the double-time feel.

   1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +    - eighths count
   >     >     >     >     >        - accents
   d u d u d u d u d u d u d u d u  - down/up strum in sixteenths

For the 2-beat change the ring-finger slides along the 4th-string
during the up-stroke between 2+ and 3.

*** Above pattern should read as follows:

   1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +    <- eighths count
   >     >     >     >     >        <- accents
   d u d u d u d u d u d u d u d u  <- down/up strum in sixteenths

BRIDGE:
Left channel plays a consistent finger-picking pattern.
Right channel part enriches the harmony while the picking is much
less strict - possibly pick-and-fingers technique.
