Kenny Chesney - Im Alive tab

This is a song I learned how to play in a day. But what a beauty. One of my favorite 
This is a version that I think sounds great, but you can do whatever kind of variation on 
song which makes it all the better.

The Chords are

D

D/F#

G

Gb (but my version)


I put the capo on the 1st or 2nd fret but again, its very universal so you figure that out.

Have Fun and let me know what you think. Through the progression, all i do is pull my 
finger up the strings. Follow the tabs and just feel it out. The ~~~~~~ means to hold out 
note. Maybe sing a little. Maybe throw a little country twang to some of the good parts. Enjoy!
