Alanis Morissette - Forgiven Acoustic chords

      
Forgiven - Alanis Morissette

Acoustic version from Jagged Little Pill
For reference, see: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbWa-dAkQDg)

Please note that this is my interpretation of the song! I may not be
playing the exact same chords as on the record, but at least you won't get
booed off stage if you use them. (At least it won't be my fault if it happens!)
I tried my best, but I'm not certain about the accuracy
of the lyrics.

Here are some chord grips for some of the more unusual chords
(the numbers above some of them are recommended fretting fingers):

           1 4 2
Aadd9: X-0-2-4-2-(0) t 1 3 2
F#7: 2-x-2-3-2-(0)
Bmaj9(no 3rd): 0-2-4-4-4-0 or: X-x-2-4-4-0
Caug: X-3-2-1-1-x If the chord grips for the Aadd9 and F#7 chords in the intro are too difficult to fret, alternatively you could play both using a regular E major-shaped bar chord and just lift your bar finger to let the open e and B strings ring out. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Intro (00:00) Aadd9 F#7 Aadd9 F#7 Verse (00:13)
