Oh I don't want to be blind
No I don't want to be blind
Suggestion by Brett Paragow (Bretparago@aol.com)
On your site, you have the intro to Otis Redding listed as being off of a G
barre chord. I disagree and am fairly sure its the same rhythmic strumming
pattern on the same strings but rather played off of an open chord G.
