Michael Franti - Sound Of Sunshine chords


Sound Of Sunshine - Michael Franti
This song isn't out yet, but he's been playing it live and it will be the cover 
track of his next album called "Sound of Sunshine." 
He plays it with simple strumming and it goes to a simple rhythm, there is an 
equal amount of time from each chord to the next, that is why there may be one Bb 
followed by another. 
As for the actual chords, some of them are barre chords, so I will tell you which 
one is which.
Bb barre 6th; F barre 8th; Eb barre 6th; Cm barre 3rd; Gm barre 3rd; the F in the 
Bridge is a regular F barred on the 1st fret.
