Subject: CRD: a/jann_arden/insensitive.crd

It's a strange song: some chords aren't really chords ( !! ), but they're
played strumming harmonics on a fret of the electric guitar.
          Bm7 played on the 7th fret
          G, played on the 12th

There's also a beautiful riff before the chorus ( I wrote
Asus4 /3 /2  A ), that is really played by the piano ( it's not an
acoustic piano, but I don't know the word in English !), that can be
tabbed in this way:

  Asus4 /3   /2    A

I couldn't figure out the solo, so if anyone can add it...
Anyone feel free to make the chords better.

                    CUT HERE
           INSENSITIVE         ( Jann Arden )

 INTRO:  D  Bm  G  A

 Dsus2                           Bm7 ( {7} )
     How do you cool your lips      after a summer's kiss
 G ( {12} )                      Asus4
     how do you rid the sweat       after the body bliss
 Dsus2/F#                        Bm7 ( {7} )
     How do you turn your eyes      from a romantic glare
 G ( {12} )                         Asus4
     how do you block the sound of a voice
                Asus4 /3 /2  A
     you'd know     anywhere
      Oh, I really should have known
      by the time you drove me home
      by the vagueness in your eyes
           A7/4             A
      your casual: "Oh, goodbye"
      By the chill in your embrace
             F#m7                      Bm
      the expression on your face told me
                     Bm7/4  B7   Em7
      maybe you might have some advice to give
         A           D
      on how to be insensitive
         Bm          G          A
      insensitive, insensitive

   How do you numb your skin
   after the warmes touch
   how do you slow your blood
   after the body rush
   How do free your soul
   after you found a friend
   how do you teach your heart  ( that's a crime
   to fall in love again

      Oh, you probably won't remember me
      it's probably ancient history
      I'm one of the chosen few
      who went ahead and fell for you
      I'm out of vogue, I'm out of touch
      I fell too fast I feel too much
      I tought that you might have some advice to give
      on how to be insensitive
      insensitive, insensitive

SOLO  ( Strum. )  ( couldn't figure it out )

      Oh, I really should have known
      by the time you drove me home
      by the vagueness in your eyes
      your casual: "Oh, goodbye"
      By the chill in your embrace
      the expression on your face told me
      maybe you might have some advice to give
      on how to be insensitive
      insensitive, insensitive

Any modifies are welcome! B-)

Very nice job overall. Two suggestions:
1. Replace the F#m7 in the chorus with D/F#. Low E fret 2 for the bass note.
2. On ad-VICE, try Gmaj7. Sounds to my ear like the bass is looking for a G right there instead of an E.
