Ryan Adams – “English Girls Approximately”

So far I’ve been pretty good at tabbing out Ryan Adams songs…
I hope someone decides to use this tab, I know it’s just one of those songs that you 
to skip on the CD…but this song really got stuck in my head. I couldn’t find any tabs on 
internet so let’s hope this one works.
Please leave a good rating, I really tried my best on this one and I think it sounds 
If you have any suggestions please post a comment. Thanks!

Celebrate the differences, I celebrate the songs you sing

geez...this song is way too simple to keep screwing up...
try playing the verse G-Am7. play g=320003 and am7=x02013. rhythm is simple... then chorus is d to c. simple. not hard. sounds exactly like the song.

I'm sure you're right about the Am7, I played it, sounds good. I knew that Cadd9 was off. If you think about it, it's only off that one little note on the B string...but that Dadd4 sounds better than a regular D...at least in this song.
