This guy is doing a lovely simple, but unique Curtis Mayfield cover of his hit "I'm So Proud" yes I've found the chords for the original, but I prefer this guys cover and arrangement and it seems as if he's using barre chords, please please help. I'm a beginner, telling me the chord and fret number would be helpful. I can't seem to get the curtis version only because its mainly open chords which I have severe problem with but am getting there.

I would just prefer to know this version though, please help if you can. I really love the intro he does, please be sure if you can, to tell me that portion as well, I'd appreciate it. I have a gig coming up and would love to take a stab at this as a new player.


I will post the lyrics here.

Prettier than all the world and I'm so proud

I'm so proud of you

You're only one fellow's girl and I'm so proud

I'm so proud of you

I'm so proud of being loved by you

And it would hurt, hurt to know

If you ever were untrue

Sweeter than the taste of a cherry so sweet

And I'm so proud girl

I'm so proud of you

Compliments to you from all the people we meet

Yes, and I'm so proud

Believe me, I love you too

I'm so proud of being loved by you

I'm so proud of being loved by you

And it would hurt, hurt to know

If you ever were untrue

Sweeter than the taste of a cherry so sweet

Yeah, and I'm so proud

I'm so proud of you

I'm so proud of being loved by you

It sounds completely different than the original, any help.

Also a quick question: when arranging songs, I notice that so many people use the same chords just do them differently or on different places on the fret or shape wise if they can- giving it a different sound most times than the song it self, for better or worse.


Why is that
