Album: Jars of Clay
Capo 3rd fret, or tune up 1 and 1/2 steps.
There are two parts to this song, the 4 chord riff (such as the intro),
and the 3 chord riff. Listen to the song to get the gist of which goes where,
and how to strum. (I like to strum a couple of times really fast, then let
it ring, then change chords).
Riff 1:
A F G B (Barre'd)
Riff 2:
Am G Em (Not Barre'd)
I'm 99.9% sure about riff 2, but not riff 1. It sounds about right.
You could play the barred chords regularly, but for speed, I stick with them.
Chords: (As if played without capo, so translate numbers up by 3)

There are more parts to the violin harmony that i haven't figured out. Sounds
good anyway.This is MY attempt at this song. It sounds pretty good to me and
pretty close to the album too. Enjoy!
I hope this doesn't get garbled on your computer. i wrote this with my page
filling the screen.It might get goofed if your screen is a small window.
