There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Artist: Craig Lyons
Song: California

Standard tuning(EADGBe)
Capo on 3rd fret( he has a high pitched voice so if you can't sing as he
does, I recommened you to either skip the capo or put in on a lower fret,
it will still get you the chicks ;P!)

The thing is that I don't really know what all chords are called, these are
not frequently used chords, so I'll call them X and Y till someone tells me.

   E A D G B E
E- x 2 2 1 0 0
X- x 4 4 2 0 0
Y- x 6 6 4 0 0

Intro: E X Y X

Verse 1:
E         X        Y           X         E      X Y X
Try to forget that I might be leaving tomorrow
E         X       Y            X          E       X Y X
Try to return the courage that you had to borrow

Verse 2:
E       X   Y                 X           E    X Y X
Nightingale sing a song to remind us we tried
      E            X         Y            X                E   X
It's hard to reach out when both of your hands  have been tied


G#m F#m
Ooooh ooooh

G# F#
I'm sated, sedated, departure debated
G# F#
I've heard California is so overrated
G# F#
I may not be here but I'll always be there
For you

Verse 3:

Play as Verse 1 and 2

We need to let go, the sky's starting catching on fire
I need to become something that I can admire


I'm sated, sedated, I'm so frustrated
I'm warbed California is so overrated
I may not be here but I'll always be there, I'll always be there
For you

Outro:(in the outro you can sing in different ways, he just makes it harmonic)
E   X    Y X
For you
E X Y    X
For you
E   X    Y X
For you
E   X    Y X
For you

G#m F#m

The end I think ruines the song so I just finish of with EXYX.
