Ain't No Sunshine

Bill Withers

Basically Am and Em, picking the bass note then a strum for each:
pick, Am, pick, Em, pick 6th string with pinky on third fret, repeat.
I don't have this written in below. The chords listed are transitions
from this pattern.

Intro: Repeat the above pattern a couple of times, then during
verses, starting with the first Am listed below
 AmEm
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone  
 AmEm
Only darkness every day 
 Dm
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
 F
And this house just ain't no home,
 Am
 Anytime she goes away.

Wonder this time where she's gone
Wonder if she's gone to stay
 Dm
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
 F
And this house just ain't no home,
 Am
 Anytime she goes away.

 GmAmGmAm
And I know I know I know know I know I know I know I know... To add fill, every fourth "I know, pound on Gm and slide down two frets to A
m (same fingering)
 Dm
Yeah I oughta leave the young thing alone
 Am
But ain't sunshine when she's gone

Repeat 1st verse

This sounds great on a electric, not so great on an acoustic. For
acoustic, I strum continuously between "picks", and for the "I know"
business I pound the strings holding down only the second string
of the first fret, then hammer down onto an Am.

On the acoustic, you could add a G after Em. Sounds alright to me
