Gnarls Barkley – Surprise chords

Chords
Transpose:
I recently started listening to a lot of Cee-Lo Green's music, and this song is
ne of my favorites.  I was happy to discover that the song was quite simple to
learn by ear.  The only chord I had trouble figuring out was the Bb (the recording
sounds like a variation other than major or minor, but I can't quite pin it down),
but a barre chord works just fine.

I hope this tab works for you!
