"I Can Only Imagine"

Standard Tuning - Capo 2

This tab was developed based on Youtube video by archangel919 - I don't know
where you came up with the chords, but thanks for the wonderful cover!

I hope it's close to what I am hearing seeing.  I'm new to the guitar and
this would be my first tabbing attempt, be kind.

Listen to the song for the proper strum and rhythm as I have none :)

Pretty sure these are the chord names, but again I'm pretty green so don't
hold me to it.

pretty good for someone who's green!

just that last chord on your list "Cm" that's actually Bm

you can tell by the lowest note on the chord: 2nd fret on 5th string, A > A# > B.

if you have the time to figure all the notes in that chord, you'll see that they are a "I-iii-V" triad (iii = flat III): B-D-F#, B minor. (B major would be I-III-V, B-D#-F#; C minor would be I-iii-V, C-Eb-G)

2 = F# = V
3 = D = iii
4 = B = I
4 = F# = V
2 = B = I

B natural minor scale (Aeolian D major):
I = B
II = C#
iii = D
IV = E# (=F)
V = F#
vi = G
vii = A
