 "In a tin cup"
REPEAT UNTIL FADE
* These 'D(A)' chords are best played like an 'appended' A chord.
For instance, first finger barring the B, G & D strings (2nd fret),
with second finger on B string (3rd fret), and 3rd finger on
D string (4th fret).
It's also worth noting with this song that there are a lot of
minor 7ths implied by the piano and guitars. (For instance,
D notes against E chords; G notes against A chords). This
is better 'felt' and improvised than written down.
See ya!
