"Lonely People" - America
arr. for one acoustic guitar

                            BASIC CHORDS USED

As far as strumming goes, you essentially play the lower half of each chord
followed by picking the top half of the chord. Listen to the recording and you'll
hear what I mean. Doing so creates a sort of rythym that continues throughout the
song. I tried tabbing the strumming out to help, along with the bass fills, but
really you can do just fine playing only the chords.

well this is suppose to be the lead guitar part, but the lead guitar should be a 12 string with a capo on the 2nd fret. I know i've seen them play it a few times, not live im not quite that old but i've seen a bunch of videos and i can tell you that for sure, but with a 6 string you've done a pretty bad ass job 5stars.
