Arcade Fire - Keep The Car Running chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Okay I'm almost positive this is the exact way to play keep the car running on guitar. This is an
awesome song, but no one had the right chords so here it is. The first thing to 
keep in mind is that you have to tune the guitar weird to play it like the guy in 
Arcade Fire does.

Tuning (from low to high): E, A, C#, F#, B, F#
Capo on third fret!

These are the chords you use. They don't look anything like the regular guitar chords so pay
attention!

There's a weight that pressing down

When it's comin', when it's comin'

There's a fear I keep so deep
