Chorus

6th Avenue Heartache by the Wallflowers, found on "Bringing Down the Horse" There's four chords throughout: E - B - F#min - A (Open E, B at 7th, ect) (You can add open high E & B's as drone notes). Sounds best "unplugged". I heard a GREAT version which was without drums and bass. Only vocals, resonator slide guitar (try a National Duolian!) for solo fills and background accordion were playing. My thanks to Jakob Dylan and the Wallflowers for this one!
