Difficulty
Capo
novice
2nd fret
I looked this up and noticed people need to learn more things instead of just throwing a 
capo on the
neck. This song can obviously be played multiple ways, so here are a few of the shapes 
of the
progressions without a capo and with. I suggest the first way without a capo as it will 
deviate you
from playing the usual chords and this is an enjoyable and easy song to play!

Standard tuning EAGDBE
Key of A

This is standard with no capo. The entire song is played with this progression and
the strumming can easily be figured out


   Bm       D         A         E
---2--------2---------0---------0------------------------------------|
---3--------3---------2---------0------------------------------------|
---4--------2---------2---------1------------------------------------|
---4--------0---------2---------2------------------------------------|
---2--------0---------0---------2------------------------------------|
---x------------------x---------0------------------------------------|

It can also be played with a capo on the 2nd fret if you want to use more familiar chords

   (Bm)    (D)       (A)      (E)
   Am       C         G        D
---0--------0---------1--------2------------------------------------|
---1--------1---------1--------3------------------------------------|
---2--------0---------0--------2------------------------------------|
---2--------2---------0--------0------------------------------------|
---0--------3---------2--------0------------------------------------|
---x--------x---------3---------------------------------------------|


This is the progression for the capo on the 4th fret. This is tougher, but you will get good
practice using some different chord shapes and might make it more interesting for you to play.

  (Bm)      (D)       (A)      (E)
   Gm       Bb        F        C
---3--------1---------1--------0------------------------------------|
---3--------3---------1--------1------------------------------------|
---3--------3---------2--------0------------------------------------|
---5--------3---------3--------2------------------------------------|
---5--------1---------3--------3------------------------------------|
---3--------x---------1--------x------------------------------------|

It's not so wrong. It is an octave E though. Barre up on the 7th fret not open. Nice little theory lesson, Thank you for posting.

The YELLOW HAND says "Please do not post tabs as comments. Select "correction" instead!" however although these are 'tabs' they are not so much a 'correction', but a continuation of the idea.

Bm D A Em
---7-------10-------8--------7---
---O-------10-------10-------8---
---7-------7--------9--------O---
---O-------O--------7--------X---
---X-------O--------O--------7---
---7-------X--------O--------O---

These are very easy to play despite their higher fret position and somewhat unfamiliar shapes.
