Mountain Goats - 1 John 416 chords

      
So there are a few easy walks on the bass note that are semi-important and the pianodoes them in the real song. When I show them I'll only show the relevant strings. Like forthe first run I only show the A and the D strings but it really means:e-----------|B-----------|G-----------|D--------1--|A--2--4-----|E-----------|
Pay close attention to what these chords are called and their voicings. Don't use the ones that chord books suggest, use these:
Eadd9 Etype2 *A* Amaj7 A6 A/C#e--2 e--4 e--0 e--4 e--2 e--0-|B--0 B--0 B--4 B--2 B--2 B--2-|G--1 G--1 G--2 G--2 G--2 G--2-|D--2 D--2 D--2 D--2 D--2 D--2-|A--2 A--2 A--0 A--0 A--0 A--4-|E--0 E--0 E--0 E--0 E--0 E--0-|
When those A chords are melting away at the ends of some of those lines (led me totoday...), you'll see that my Amaj7 and my *A* will be part of an easy line that should justmove your pinkie down a note at a time and keep the meat of the A chord intact. Like this or something similar: A6 A *A* Ae--2----0----0----0-|B--2----2----4----2-|G--2----2----2----2-|D--2----2----2----2-|A--0----0----0----0-|E--0----0----0----0-|
