The National - Apartment Story chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I'm a huge fan of The National, but their songs are not easy to play or to cover (most
them at least), neither to figure out actually :). The other chords available here are
on ashow from the National and so are accurate to the way the band plays it, but it's 
really that much fun to play on an acoustic guitar. I just tabbed my own version in about
minutes with pretty much only simple chords. The key sounds right, and I do improvise a 
C variations when I play it that go nicely with the song so no, it is not accurate as in 
same as the original, just play or fiddle around with it and tell me what you think. Enjoy!
