Jefferson Airplane - Wooden Ships chords

      
Here is the Airplane's great recording of the Kantner/Stills collaboration. These 
are the main chords Paul plays. Jorma solos in E minor pentatonic. If anyone wants 
the solo tab, comment and say so. This is pretty easy, you just have to remember 
the Cmaj7 in the first verse and the Cmaj7 in the "sail away..." part are 
different. I put the chord shapes at the bottom. Have fun.
