Artist: Blind Pilot
Song: The Story I Heard

"The Story I Heard"
Blind Pilot
3 Rounds and a Sound

Capo 1
All chords relative to capo.

Chords used:
F7/C     (F7)   1x3210
F11             1x3230
F7sus2/C (F*)   1x3010
Fadd9    (F9)   1x3213
C        (C)    x32010
Cadd9    (C9)   x32030

Notes to playing it JUST like Blind Pilot:

1)  He does this little pinky thing with his F chord.  First he'll emphasize the open E
the F7, then he'll emphasise the D on the F11, then back to the E string on the F7, and
he'll do a sort of melodic fall from the F9-F7-F11-F7.  (emphasize the notes, G-E-D-C).  
great video is found on youtube by searching, Blue Ribbon Vision @ the riverside
 In fact, in that video he breaks his A string (on purpose!) to avoid hitting that nasty 
(which I included for the C chords)

2) When strumming verse, he does a weird pull of thing with the 2nd fret on the G
but it's VERY brief, don't over do it!  The idea is a F7-F*-F7- real quick.

3) When strumming the bridge (Amin chord), he uses pull offs on the 2nd fret of the D
G strings.  He also plays the f7 chord for only 1 strum!

4)  He changes the strumming pattern towards the end (on the chorus section) to
a melody involving the D on the B string  (3rd fret).  I'm too lazy to tab it out, 
have
use your ear.  Check out the video, it'll help loads!

  Marry the woman,

  went off and loved someone else.

  Oh, 'cause the story I heard
          F11-F7  F11-F7
is the people are bored
             C9-C   C9-C       C9-C
  and the measures you take
       C9-C                C9-C
  to wrestle with your Lord.

  Will He measure your tongue?

            C9-C            C9-C
  Will He measure your will?

F11-F7                  F11-F7       F11-F7       C9 C C9 C
  You'll write your story on firecracker paper,
           Amin  Amin Amin
  And disappear...
    F7       C
  Near disappear...
           Amin  Amin  Amin
  And disappear...

  Near disappear...
