Elton John - Bennie And The Jets chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Bennie and the Jets
Elton John
Start on E

The other tabs I have found are close but if you want the chords to sound 
exactly like the recording, this should get you there.This song isn't really 
difficult to play as long as you're comfortable with barre chords.  I wrote 
out the chord formations I use but if you know a better way, go ahead and 
use them.  I think the way i wrote out the chords make the transistions a 
little easier.  Anyway, enjoy!

Chords Used:

*Note: I find the easiest way to play the G#aug is to act like your playing 
an F chord, except one string up, and then add your pinkie on the 4th fret of the 
low E string*
