Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
Edi Addi C BSingle notes are shown as S/F, where S is the string and F is the fret. The Andersonianism occurs on the last word of each (extended) line of the verse. He comes off the D chord straight into an Asus4, with the pinky holding down the 2/3 suspended note, in front of the 3rd finger on the 2nd fret. He strums down once, then lifts both the pinky and the 3rd finger off of the 2nd string and strums up, then replaces the 3rd finger on the 2nd fret and strums down-up. He then slides to his Em7 fingering, pinning the 3rd finger on 2/3 ready for the D chord, plays the little riff by lifting and placing the first finger. The last note of the riff is the open 4th string - during this he sets up the D fingering and then down-strums it. V=downpick, ^=uppick, /=downstrum, \=upstrum chord frets fingering
