No chord
Standard guitar tuning:
E
A
D
G
B
E
Capo on 2 fret
-----
Listen how the song pulses on the A string rhythmically -- feel that galloping horse. The chorus changes from the E/A, D/A, A pattern the second time round, to the "normal" E, A, D chords. should too, if you want to sound authentic. Fingerpick the song using your thumb, index, and middle fingers. That's how The Man does it. Have fun!!! The Chords: The names may be a bit wrong since it's getting late, but the chord forms are correct. The numbers with the recommended finger to use, starting with 1=index, etc... Advanced players choose your own. :-) Look for the "1"'s -- they get lost in the text easily../
