Allison Weiss – I Was An Island chords

Chords
Transpose:
I Was An Island by Allison Weiss
Tabbed By Titanium Drew


Capo 5th Fret


Simple song with all of four chords basically.  The chord marked "G2" on here is just a pretty
common transitional G Maj (half step down on low E string and A string opened, like this):

G G2-3- -3-|-3- -3-|-0- -0-|-0- -0-|-2- -0-|-3- -2-|
The strumming is pretty easy to pick up from the song and there are only a couple strum patterns throughout. There is a nice little instrumental solo in the middle and she did an version on what I think was her first youtube video of this song. It is basically just a few using the chord shapes themselves. Look it up on youtube, it should be the first result if seach for this song. It is a nice addition to a easy, pretty song. Enjoy -TD VERSE 1
