Larry And His Flask – Call It What You Will chords

This was the only song I had any trouble figuring out on my own because of the unusual
chords and progression, so I decided to go ahead and make an account and put this up.

A few notes:
  >I'm not sure if the G is always played as a dominant seventh chord, but the two are
pretty interchangable anyway.

  >The Em is always played as an Am shaped bar chord on the 7th fret and the Am that
comes after it is played on the 5th fret, while the C before the Em is easiest to play on
the 8th fret or the 3rd fret as a bar chord.  If the Am follows the E major then you 
just play a regular open E and Am.

  >On the diminished chord, if you keep your fingers in the same shape but move your
fingers up 3 frets every beat you get that cool ascending arpeggiated chord sound they do
on that measure.

  >The walk up part right before the second verse is a G7 arpeggio.  If you can't play
it just keep playing the G7 until the verse.

F Fm G7Rest assured that it's dark on the other side, side side.
The end is those crazy G7 arpeggios ascending followed by a C arpeggio descending. Good luck!
