Don Mclean – Vincent chords ver. 4

Chords
Transpose:
I missed a good fingerpicking chord version of this fabolous song.
The fingerpicking you have to find out for yourself, or turn to the tab-version of 
course. Or play along with YouTube.

The number between brackets after the G chord means it's a different chord form 
than played elsewhere. See chord diagrams.
