TUNING: Half-Step Down, but can be played in a standard tuning
CAPO: No, but in a standard tuning can be played with a capo


I believe all the guitars for this instrumental were tuned down half step (or semitone).
If you try this tuning, you will realise how simple things will get, but you can play
it in a standard tuning as well and with a capo, which is the easiest method.

Only 1st and 4th strokes in the strumming pattern hit the thicker strings, and
all the other strokes should be going on the higher strings only. Also, you
can lift your left hand after those 1st and 4th strokes and mute the strings.

This way you will play the rhythm just like on the record.


The chords for Half-Step Down tuning are:

Am........[x02210] or [577555]
G.........[320003] or [355433]
C.........[x32010] or [x3555x]
F.........[133211]
Bm7add11..[x2x230] or [7x775x]
E7........[020130] or [x7675x]

And the full chord chart:

| Am | % | % | % |
| Am | % | G | % |
| C | F | C | F |
| C | G | C | Bm7add11 E7 |


Now, if you want to play it in standard tuning, use these chords:

Abm........[466444]
Gb.........[244322]
B..........[x2444x] or [799877]
E..........[022100] or [x7645x]
Bbm7add11..[6x664x]
Eb7........[x6564x]

| Abm | % | % | % |
| Abm | % | Gb | % |
| B | E | B | E |
| B | Gb | B | Bbm7add11 Eb7 |


The easiest way to play it is by using a capo on the 4th fret, now chords will look like this:

Em.........[022000]
D..........[x00232]
G..........[320003]
C..........[x32010]
F#m7add11..[2x220x]
B7.........[x21202]

| Em | % | % | % |
| Em | % | D | % |
| G | C | G | C |
| G | D | G | F#m7add11 B7 |
