Cara Dillon - If I Prove False chords


From Cara’s “The Redcastle Session” DVD.

This is a duet with the awesome John Smith, a stunning arrangement of a Carter Family 
song 'Storms On The Ocean'.

John plays in an alternate tuning on the DVD (DADGAD, I think!) but I have attempted 
this in standard tuning.

To play in the same key as Cara and John, slip your capo on at the 2nd fret.

The chord names are relative to capo, so play D as xx0232, but it’s actually an E!
