After the Rain  Nelson

 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard, but downtuned 1/2 step:
Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-eb
Tempo: Standard Rock Pace
Chords: (surprisingly very simple)
[B5] [A5] [E5] [C#5] [F#5] [A#+4] [A#+4]  
 
 e|--- e|--- e|--- e|--- e|--- e|--- e|---|
 B|--- B|--- B|--- B|--- B|--- B|--- B|---|
 G|-4- G|-2- G|--- G|-6- G|--- G|-4- or G|-6-|
 D|-4- D|-2- D|-2- D|-6- D|-4- D|-4- D|-4-|
 A|-2- A|-0- A|-2- A|-4- A|-4- A|-1- A|-x-|
 E|--- E|--- E|-0- E|--- E|-2- E|--- E|-6-|

Performance Note: All of the above chords can be strummed with the top Bb and eb string
open, except for the F#5 and A#+4 or it's variant. This is especially useful for
acoustic style without any electronics.
IE:
[B5]e|(0)
B|(0)
G|-4-
D|-4-
A|-2-
E|---
You'll want to keep the A#+5 crisp and clear, the same as the F#5 because of the
it should be a 'bump' in the road of the smooth flow of chords to break up the norm.
