Laura Veirs – Life Is Good Blues chords

Chords
Transpose:
Beautiful song from the incredible Laura’s July Flame album.

The chords are easy but this one is very best suited to alternate picking for the 
bass notes on the Em, Am7 and C chords. 

I've put the picking patterns at the foot of the tab!

Ok. It's in standard tuning, capo 3rd fret. 

Chords relative to capo’d position
i.e. Am7 is actually a Cm7, G is actually Bb and so on!
