Ryan Adams - Shadowlands chords version 1

Chords
Transpose
For some reason there seems to be alot of confusion on the first chord of this song.  
The First chord is an F#sus2 chord
The reason it sounds ominous is because of the low register of the voicings
The Entire Progression is
F#sus2 C#     B    repeated over and over

IF you're playing this on piano you have to invert the chord so that it follows the top 
melody line which utilizes the notes G# (for the F#sus2) F (For the C#) and D# (for the 
B chord.)
So fill the chord normally,  just make sure those notes are on top and you should be fine.
For any of you familiar with theory
The F#sus2 and C# chords are in first inversion while the final B chord is in 2nd 
inversion.  Take note that the inversion only happen in the left hand, the right hand plays 
the usual bass(root) notes.

IF you're plannning on playing this on guitar I suggest you down tune a halfstep so you 
can get that open chord feeling, thats in the song.
