I absolutely love this cover.

If you know the original you'll know he's singing in a different key and different rythym. I already know how to play the original - so that's not my question. I want help figuring out how this guy plays the chords.

I managed to find chords that fix the key he plays in perfect, starting with a barred A shape on Fret 6 (D#Maj) and going from there. Even though they fit the song they dont' sound like the ones he plays at all.


e|---6--6--8---4
B|---8--6--8---4
G|---8--7--8---5
D|---8--8--10--6
A|---6--8--10--6
E|---x--6--8---4


Those fit the key he sings in, but sound completely different from how he plays. Also I can't play the rythym because he does some little flairs between chords by the sounds of things.

I've tried to ask him when he does online video conferencing, but he just gets swamped so much with fans he never gets to my questions. He also writes on his page that he doesn't do tabs because he plays everything by ear.

Anyone able to help tab this awesome version?

If you don't know why, then I guess this is not the thread for you. Hope the next thread provides you with meaning.

he's playing standard with a CAPO on the 3rd fret....the strumming is something like this...


e|---------------x--x----------x-------------------|
B|---------------x--x----------x-------------------|
G|---------9----x--x-----9----x-------9----------|
D|---------9----x--x-----9----x-------9----------| etc..
A|----7----7----x--x-----7----x---7--7----------|
E|---------------x--x-----------x------------------|


so, I didn't tab the strumming, just the chords, I think you can figure out this part...

-----E-------B-------Dbm7-------------------------A
e|----------(7)-------------------------------------(5)-----------|
B|-(9)-----(7)-------------------------------------(5)------------|
G|--9-------8--------9------------9--------9------6--------------|
D|--9-------9--------9------------9--------9------7-------------|
A|--7-------9--------7------------7--------x------7--------------|
E|-----------7-------9--------9-------7-----------5----------------|

and then, he plays the same chords, adding something between B and Dbm7...

----E--------B-----------------Dbm7-------------------------A
e|----------(7)-----------------------------------------------(5)-----------|
B|-(9)-----(7)-----------------------------------------------(5)------------|
G|--9-------8-------8----------9------------9--------9------6--------------|
D|--9-------9------10---------9------------9--------9------7-------------|
A|--7-------9------9-----------7------------7--------x------7--------------|
E|-----------7------8----------9--------9-------7-----------5----------------|

He ends the chorus with this chord:

F#7add4
e|-----0------------------|
B|-----0-----------------|
G|-----3------------------|
D|-----4-----------------|
A|-----4------------------|
E|-----2--------------------|

somewhere along the end, he starts playing with open chords:

----E--------B-----------------Dbm7-------------------------A
e|--0-------0-------------------0------------0--------0------0-----------|
B|--0-------0-------------------0------------0--------0------0------------|
G|--9-------8-------8----------9------------9--------9------6--------------|
D|--9-------9------10---------9------------9--------9------7-------------|
A|--7-------9------9-----------7------------7---------------7--------------|
E|--0--------7------8----------9--------9-------7-----------5----------------|

The very last chord of the song:

e|-----0------------------|
B|-----0-----------------|
G|-----9------------------|
D|-----9-----------------|
A|-----7------------------|
E|-----0--------------------|

I didn't tab the whole thing, since you said you know the song, hope this is clear enough...
