So here are the chords for Bon Iver?s Heavenly Father. Bear in mind that these chords
will only fit with the
recording if you tune your guitar a whole step down (DGCFAD). Look here for guidance on
how to do that:
http://www.howtotuneaguitar.org/tuning/full-step-down/. To get the true chord
progression, just transpose the
whole song using the transpose function on this site to the left - it's in the key of Bb
so transpose it a whole
step down.
Also a thank you to Philip H. Mancuso for giving inspiration to this tab - he?s done a
cool cover of the song
here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EbE9IbLfRo
He is also doing some fingerpicking for the intro and first verse. If you want to play
that, I suggest you go
look and listen over at youtube. However, the stuff he is playing around with is the tab below.
Some of the chords has some small variations, so I've put how I like to play them below
as well. Have fun.
