 blue

  B7     B7   Em
a town called blue.

Chord fingerings:

EADGBe
022000 - Em
X02220 - A
X21202 - B7
X79987 - Em(VII)
x57775 - D(V)
002220 - A/E
320003 - G
X32010 - C
355433 - G(III)
2X0010 - C/F#
XX0232 - D
X02210 - Am
X24442 - B
797877 - B7(VII)

* play Em with your 3rd & 4th fingers, then slide those upto the 4th fret


Bend notation :

  /
x(y)   fretted at x, pick and bend upto y

   \
x(y)x  fretted at x, pre-bent (to y), pick and release bend back down to x


h is a hammer on
p is a pull-off
sl is a slide
^v^v^v^v  is tremolo (?with a wang bar)


I'm not at all sure about the C/F# and in theory, the Bs and As should all be
minor chords, but it doesn't sound right like that. Any suggestions welcome.
