Frank Turner – Rivers chords
My first chords, dont be too mean ;) Can't believe noones uploaded this yet! One of my favs from the new album, had to be done.A/E means play the bass note E (3rd string).G-A or E- means quickly strum the chord preceding the "-" before going straight back to the following chord (So for the E-, its E then A). This just adds a little something to the song.Also, I find it sounds nice to play the A with the G string open (Making it A7 perhaps? I'm no expert 002200). Hope this helps!
