Hootie And The Blowfish – Desert Mountain Showdown chords

Nice Bluegrass-ish tune from the 'Musical Chairs' Album for all redneck wannabes out there
Album track is played relatively slow but live they turn it up several notches. Best to 
slow and work your speed up. Listen to the track for the timing.

During the Chorus and bridge there are some minor steel guitar licks mixed with the 
and violin but I havent put them on here. They are relatively simple (3-4 notes just as the 
riff ends) so if someone wants to add them later then feel free. Alternatively 
you can just 'wing it' like I tend to do.

Main Riff:
