This is a simplification, as is common when trying to chord after Anderson who seems to
rules whether they need it or not. Even so, following along with the recording is more
than it appears here due to time changes, including dropping a beat here and there to 
parts of this something like 4:7 time. Thus the chords are novice, but the playing is
level. But just let it flow, and you'll catch on. When you do it's a darn fun strum, and 
great way to show off at holiday visitors.

Great chord structure, though I think it's in the key of F
