Walk On The Ocean Chords by Toad The Wet Sprocket
Tabbed by Big Daddy Glenn

I saw many good attempts and one really close one. As simple as this song sounds it
has a complex progression with a tight walking bass line. Too many people are playing a
Em where the B is. Follow these chord forms and the progression listed and you’ll hear 
from the other versions. The key on the B is to be sure you don’t play the
string and to strum through the chord and play the open D in the chord. Realize that all
notes are relative to the Capo on the 4th fret.
