This is a very simplified version of "Your Song" for guitar (NOT piano).
I sometimes give this transcription to my students so they can work on
arpeggiation and finger-picking (this song sounds very pretty when done
this way). The chord progression [Bm]-[Bm/A]-[Bm/Ab]-[G] is just a simple
walking-bass note progression.
This transcription is NOT in the original KEY (Eb). Feel free to use a capo
to change it back (or to fit your voice better) ***I transposed the entire
song a 1/2 step lower to (1). Suit my baritone voice better during solo gigs
2). to make it a bit more guitar-friendly. Sadly some keys like Eb aren't as
easy to play typical open guitar chords in (unless you down-tune the guitar);
***Placing a capo on the 1st fret modulates the tune back to the original
key of Eb while retaining these familiar chord fingerings. A typical D chord
shape XX0232 (D,A,D,F# notes) played with capo on the 1st fret produces the
notes (Eb,Bb,Eb,G) which is actually an Eb chord. As I said, this allows the
guitarists to play the correct chords while using familiar chord fingerings.

Have fun . . .

Not too short, not too long, just right. Works very well.

remember this is a guitar transcription NOT a piano transcription. I transposed this a 1/2 step flat so guitarists can play it easier. A capo on the 1st fret gets it back to the original key of Eb (yes if you play an open first position D-chord with a capo on the 1st fret it's actually an Eb chord).
