  [A] Being all [D] alone

CHORUS:
  [A] Every little thing [Dm] Every Little thing

the bridge is way off and the chorus doesn't sound very accurate either

Thanks for your comments. I mostly watch Tweedy play rhythm parts. I can't discount that I sometimes miss out on what Jay (now Pat & Nels) added to the mix.

I agree the bridge sounds off when using the standard chord shapes-- what I documented and what you mostly get on this site. Step the progression up to the 7th fret on lead guitar and it'll sound a lot better.

RE: the chorus, I contemplated 'Emaj7' over 'E'. Depending on the version, Summerteeth or live, you can hear both. If you have a better way, please post it.
