3rd chorus and out chorus

More or less the same as the 1st and 2nd


Note: The rhythm pattern for the verse and chorus differs to that supplied for 

the intro. It requires a lot of strumming -Listen to the recording( one 

guitar will suffice). 

Enjoy!

Song: FREE FALLIN'
By: Tom Petty

The lyrics can already be found on the Harmony Central Archive, but these 
chords sound better to me than the ones found there:

Instead of:     G    C     C    G   D  which is what is found in the Crd. 
Archive of Harmony Central for FREE
FALLING, use the following in TAB:

I only used them on the part of the chorus, but is generally all the same 
throughout the song.  Note that this is a very simple way of playing it.  
When playing it strum each chord up and down something like 3 or 4 times. 
 Or just listen to the song.

The rest of the song is always the same

Hey, it sounds better if you put you capo on the third fret. Play the chords like normal (as if there wasnt the capo), but on Cadd4, play the second part, the (0653xx). It sounds good, and its easy to hold (no need to hold the d string cause you have the capo.
