Linnea Olsson - Sailing (2014)
Chords 27/12-2015 by Jon Malmin (jogusmal@hotmail.com)
Tuning: Standard E

The low note during the verse parts when the C is being played is not actually a G, but a lower C. However,
since this note can not be reached on a guitar in standard tuning, I play C/G instead to get almost the same
feeling as the original recording. If you're playing this song with a bassist, I suggest that the bassist
plays a low C note instead of the G.

Strumming pattern (the strokes in parenthesis are lighter or even optional. Dots represent syncopated notes):

Beat:                       1  .  2  .  3  .  4  .
Down-or Upstroke:           D  U (D) U (D) U  D (U)
Chord example:              C  C     C     C  C/G

The song can also be played with lightly palm-muted downstrokes. Experiment with different variations!
