Song:Edelweiss (Oscar Hammerstein II, Richard Rodgers)
from the movie: The Sound Of Music.
Chord Analysis: Mats Fagergren.

The song Edelweiss occur two times in the movie/film.
The 1st time it is played in E flat (Eb).
The second time when it is appering in the film, the whole family sing 
together and the 2nd verse is shortened.
This time the song is then in the key of F

I present here both versions including intro.
For the first version tune down the strings to Eb,Ab,Db,Gb,Bb,eb. 
second time tune back to E,A,d,G,B,e and put a capo on 1st fret.

Use the chords according to the instruction below:

string-E,A,D,G,B,e

Thank you for such meticulous attention to detail for such a deceptively delicate song, including exactly which part of the song each voicing is to be used. The (inclusion of alternate fingerings for chords, especially for chords at the higher end of the fretboard. This truly makes the accompaniment "sing" in a way playing the standard chords might not, if jumping back and forth between chords picked from chord books. I am learning so much from your chords and tabs. While I am primarily a vocalist seeking to play accompaniment for my own and other singers, your work on songs I might select for performance has taught me so much, and inspired a bit more creativity in my own arrangements, including single-string enhancements, because I am learning new chords beyond just barre chords. Sorry to gush so much, but your clear and detailed work in this format has really improved my playing, as I am sure it has done for others. Thank you!
