I’ve included a couple of variations on the A and Asus chords
in this one. These have been provided for convenience. The one
you play should be dictated by where you are on the neck. I
tend to use both of the As – it just depends which chord I’ve
just played and where I need to be next. If you play the open A
on the "over me" part, then you can play the leading notes
for the second part of that first verse (E, F#, G#) and then play
the barre A, which puts you in the right area of the neck to grab
the barre C#7. Obviously, if you play the barre A, then you’ll
also play the barre Asus. For the verses, the leading notes are
played on the sixth string. The leading notes for the C#7 going
into the chorus are played on the fifth string. These notes are
A, B and C. After playing the C, immediately fret and play the
C#7 barre.

The key change in the outro has a nice chromatic progression of
A#, A, A#, B and C. You can either play these as full chords,
or as chord fragments. I prefer to play them as chord fragments,
since it gives it an edgier sound. Play those as:

    A#  A   A#  B   C

Notice the A# used here is different than the one diagramed at
the top of the page. This is done to keep your hand in close
proximity to the C7 and the F in the outro. The leading notes
just prior to the key change in the outro are F, G and A. Play
these on the sixth string.

Intermediate to advanced players should have no problems with
this song and will probably figure out ways to make it sound
even better. I've gone back and made some changes to the song
I originally submitted. After listening to the chorus again, I
realized there were some additional chords I had missed. I have
edited the submission to include those. I have also included
the bluesy double-stops in the outro, just before the last A#.

Looks like the formatting on the chord chart got messed up. Here's what it was supposed to look like:

A x02220 C#7 x46464 B7 x24242 D7 x57575
A 577655 C#7#5 x46465 E 022100 G7 353433
Asus x02230 F#7 242322 F 133211 C7 x35353
Asus 577755 F#9 242344 A# 688766 B13 x24244
Eadd9 022102

Also, in the Solo, the chords should be:


A C#7 F#7 B7 E A Asus A
