WANT FOR NOTHING - Jennifer Knapp
 
 -----------------------------------------------------------------

Artist: Jennifer Knapp
Song: Want For Nothing
Album: Letting Go (2010)
Transcribed by: Megan Gandy
E-mail: meganegandy@gmail.com
Instructions: When Jennifer Knapp performs this song live, she
seems to use a steady down-up-down-up strumming pattern when using
her acoustic guitar to play the rhythm guitar part, which may
sound different to the ear than the way that the rhythm guitar
part is performed on her album "Letting Go". That difference is
most likely due to her performing the rhythm guitar part on the
album with an electric guitar and using more of a down-down-down-
down strumming pattern throughout. Also, although I do not use
the notated chord "C2/G" anywhere in the transcription below,
Jennifer Knapp does use that chord in the variations she adds
when performing the song live by herself. So, feel free to add
it in as a transition chord when playing the "C/G" chord in the
verses. Thanks, and enjoy!!
