Bm -> Bm -> A AWe could have been Gso good-natured if yoDu'd relented when AI insisted, Bm we take Ga week off, let the garden gDrow by itAself, Bmand let the glGuttons fill themselves with aDll the worst of the gAory nineties Bm And though the comGedy softens the fDall, we still fall shAort. Before we take this rGide and let it slide into the cracks where faDll and winter collide. I surrGender all my gall in a song of modern loDve. GRemember you're the one who summoned mDe above any other kAind. G G -> Bm (slide) First off, I've built on the previous version and filled in some vital missing chords, changed some wrong ones and amended the lyrics. So the ground work comes courtesy of the other version. Now, you can play this with either barre chords or open, it doesn't really matter. I personally like to play it in barre chords, because in the verse, I like to go Bm, then slide from the G back up to Bm. It sounds really good, although I don't think the shins do it that way. Listen to the song for the timings, how many bars etc, but it's all fairly simple. If playing open chords, you can quickly hammer on a pinky on the 3rd fret of the B string at the end of the A chord (making it an asus4)in the pre chorusy section (could have been so good natured if I'd relented when you insisted (hammer on)) etc. You can hear this quite clearly in the song, adds a nice touch and makes it sound a little more interesting on guitar. The same goes for Barre chords, although then you can just do a slight bend with your middle finger at the end of the A.
