You might want to adjust your guitar a bit to match the specific recording
you have since these were extracted from 78's and the pitch might be off.
I had to screw the pitch up by about a whole note to match the "My Prayer"
album.

When playing accent the bass root-note on the down strum and the higher
pitched three strings on the up strum to get the effect you hear on the
record (and so the chords sound proper). Also, don't use a pick, use your
thumb to soften the sound.

LEGEND:
^ = down strum (eadgbe)
v = up strum (ebgdae)
() = optional
p = right hand thumb
i = right hand index finger
m = right hand middle finger
a = right hand ring finger
c = right hand little finger

CHORDS USED:
     eadgbe
Am:  577555

I don't wanna set the world on fire, honey. I love you too much.

Nice. I only heard about this when Fallout 3 came out. (and it made me want to play it.)
