    aw wow what a beautiful song, wish I could hear it played. I had no idea there was so much put into a song for the guitar, I have no idea what all this writing is but my hat goes off to anyone who plays guitar, it looks like a lot of work and an amazing talent to have.

      Hi Jayde, thanks for your comment. It’s a pretty song indeed.

    I remember this song from years ago, never went as far as learning it though. It seems as though you’ve charted the chords that the song is actually recorded to (more often than not this key changes in the live performances). 

    I’ll try this out myself tonight but I think I’ll transpose the key into C – a much easier chord progression and I can actually sing in the key of C (it’s the only key I can sing in!). 

    I always find that acoustic songs flow and rattle a lot better when there are no bar chords present, i.e. all open chords.

      Hi Chris! Yes, the key often changes for live, I don’t even know why – maybe to avoid boredom, or feel different? I tend to agree with you for the open chords, even if there are great acoustic songs out there played with bar chords only. I’d say it’s a matter of feeling and how you want your song to sound like. It’s true that with open chords, we can hear the resonance of the guitar better, that’s why they’re often chosen over bar chords – and they are easier to do.
