 A* and G* represent an F-barre chord (i.e. xx7655 and xx5433).
Where I have the chord over the middle of a syllable (or in some cases
over underscores at the end of a word), play the chord about an eighth
note behind. In the section where I have the chords in between words,
strum the chord twice (eighth notes). Listen to the recording.
