Jonathan Coulton - Blue Sunny chords

Blue Sunny Day by Jonathan Coulton

Capo 2nd fret

So as this song uses a capo on the second fret, i've decided to use the names
of the actual chords rather than the basic shape names like most people do.
I think it's misleading and unhelpful for you to learn a song and start
unconsciously linking the wrong chord names to the wrong sounds. So hopefully
you wont notice a huge difference when learning it, but it'll be worth it.
Let me know if your really struggling though and i'll see what I can do for you.
