Teitur - I Run The Carousel chords

Chords
Transpose
Notes:
+ On the album he seems to play the C and G/B chords as indicated on the left.
  I included alternate fingerings in parenthesis on the right as an easier version
  (plus the transitions are smoother when you stay in one position on the neck).
+ The general pattern for picking in the verse is low-mid-high-mid.  He includes 
  variations throughout where he just plays low-high-low-high, such as F and Fsus2.
+ I'm not entirely certain that the low E string rings throughout all the chords
  in the chorus.  But without it, the chorus sounds kind of weak.  The ringing
  low E adds power, so I included it.
+ The dashes for the chords in the chorus are just to remind you to strum the
  chord once and then directly strum the next chord following the dash.  Listen
  to the song and you'll get the pattern.
+ After the second and third chorus there is a weird transition section.  It's hard
  to tell what exactly is going on here, but the overall harmony sounds like
  the indicated G#maj7 chord so just play around with that.
