Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics
Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.


In the Backseat  Arcade Fire

Song: In The Backseat
Artist: Arcade Fire
Bits and pieces of the existing tabs are decent,
hopefully this brings all the good stuff together
for something pretty accurate.
Listen to the song a few times to learn the timing with lyrics.
Sounds good fingerpicked, but strumming works too. Look at the
finger positions (2 per bar) and try strumming those.
