I’ve included a couple of variations on the A and Asus chords in this one. These have been provided for convenience. The one you play should be dictated by where you are on the neck. I tend to use both of the As – it just depends which chord I’ve just played and where I need to be next. If you play the open A on the "over me" part, then you can play the leading notes for the second part of that first verse (E, F#, G#) and then play the barre A, which puts you in the right area of the neck to grab the barre C#7. Obviously, if you play the barre A, then you’ll also play the barre Asus. For the verses, the leading notes are played on the sixth string. The leading notes for the C#7 going into the chorus are played on the fifth string. These notes are A, B and C. After playing the C, immediately fret and play the C#7 barre. The key change in the outro has a nice chromatic progression of A#, A, A#, B and C. You can either play these as full chords, or as chord fragments. I prefer to play them as chord fragments, since it gives it an edgier sound. Play those as:
A# A A# B Ce|--1------------------------------------------------------------------|B|--3---2---3---4---5--------------------------------------------------|G|--3---2---3---4---5--------------------------------------------------|D|--3---2---3---4---5--------------------------------------------------|A|--1------------------------------------------------------------------|E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
Notice the A# used here is different than the one diagramed at the top of the page. This is done to keep your hand in close proximity to the C7 and the F in the outro. The leading notes just prior to the key change in the outro are F, G and A. Play these on the sixth string. Intermediate to advanced players should have no problems with this song and will probably figure out ways to make it sound even better. I've gone back and made some changes to the song I originally submitted. After listening to the chorus again, I realized there were some additional chords I had missed. I have edited the submission to include those. I have also included the bluesy double-stops in the outro, just before the last A#. A#
