The Avett Brothers - The New Love Song chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This song is beautiful and I am going to give you the chords.  I would tab
it, because I have all of the licks that are built around the chords
figured out, but tabbing is so much more of a pain in the ass.  I will tab
the main lick thing where there is no singing. The rest will just be chords.

STANDARD TUNING.  CAPO 2  ACCENT THE BASS NOTES OF EACH CHORD.  THAT IS
IMPORTANT FOR THIS STYLE OF COUNTRY-FOLK STUFF.

Chords:

   G   G/F#  Em  Em/B  C   D/F#
e--3----3----0----0----0----2-----------------------------|
B--3----3----0----0----1----3-----------------------------|
G--0----0----0----0----0----2-----------------------------|
D--0----0----2----2----2----0-----------------------------|
A--2----x----2----2----3----x-----------------------------|
E--3----2----0----x---------2-----------------------------|

PS:  This might seem weird since so few words are sang over so many chords,
so just listen to the song its very easy (and beautiful).  The chords will
not be over the lyrics in the right spot.

G   G/F#   Em    Em/B     C  (repeat this progression over and over)
Elegant and soft
G   G/F#   Em    Em/B     C

Play the chord progression twice as a break

However dangerous or safe

I'll find within you
