Hit the Ground Runnin'  Reckless Kelly

You can bang this one out in E, A, B and D and it still has a cool rock vibe. But to play it like
the CD, you'll need to finesse it a bit. The first 6 lines of the song (Pre Verse) are played with an E5
at the 7th fret then it transitions to traditional E chords. The Asus4 is played at the 5th fret. It takes
a non traditional fingering of the A chord to make this smooth. Switch the ring and pinky so the pinky
is on the A string, ring finger on the D string. Keep the bar,index and ring fingers planted and jump over
the D string with the pinky from A string to G string 7th fret. The pinky hammers on the G string
here...listen to the track and you'll get the timing.
Once you're into the Verse, it's first position chords to get that cool open B and E string droan under the
E chord. And you can play the Asus4 at the second fret by hammering on the B string 3rd fret.
The D E setup in the phrases of the lead sections.../ /... is played as partial bar chords 7th and 9th frets.
