Blur - The Universal chords

Hey everyone, this is a great song and I've played these chords along and
it definitely sounds right to me - if you think there's anything wrong,
please just post a correction or comment and I'll check it out :)

In this song, I'd recommend that you use the barr chords for the G (355433)
and Bm (224432) - simply as I think it sounds better. Also, a chord you
might not be sure about is Gsus4 - I would simply play this similar to a G
barr, but it would be Gsus4 (353533) - you just move your pinkie finger up
one string, which then makes it easier for the change (this is actually
classed as a G7, but it should be Gsus4 as 355533, which I personally find
quite hard to play and change with as well).

You might need to listen to the song to get the timings exactly right, but
I've tried to position them where they are played in relation to the lyrics.

Anyway, hope it helps :)
