Notes:

  • Chords with a forward slash followed by another chord simply means you play the first chord leading with the bass note after the forward slash

    D/C signifies a D chord leading with a C bass note

    C/D signifies a C chord leading with a D Bass note which is an open 4th string with the chord starting on the 3rd fret... xx0553. It has a very open sound and works well.

    C/D can also be played as xx0010 which also sound good. Think of it as a C chord without fingers 2 and 3.

  • Beginners don't have to play the bass notes... it still sounds fine. Instead of C/F - play C; instead of C/D - play C; instead of D/C - play D.
  • | G - - - | Drums | means you play the G chord on the first beat of the bar and stop for the remainder of the bar and the following bar except for the drums.
  • For all other transpositions along with lyrics, use the Free Transposition Service.
