The National - Dont Swallow The Cap chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
From their new album "Trouble Will Find Me", which will be amazing because this song is 
on it. The C/Bb chord is just to get a nice transition from Am, and it makes it sound 
more like the recording, you can also briefly play a Bb. Enjoy!
