I'll tell you the same thing I told Rush:

Gruadally get slower, then on the last chord at a bit of whammy bar and virbrato.

tabs can just confuse you if you dont actually play it, or maybe you misread it and played something different?

Emaj7
Aadd9



Emaj7

ok, E major scale =

E-root F#-2nd G#-3rd A-4th B-5th C#-6th D#-7th E-8th(octave) F#-9th etc etc

well the E means its an E major chord made up of the root note (E) the 3rd (G#) and the 5th (B) and the maj7 means that it also has the major 7th note, D# (if it was just 7th then it would use the dominant 7th note, which would be D, but don't worry about that)


For the Aadd9,

It's the same, just an a chord made of the root A, the 3rd C# and the 5th E,

but with an added 9th (the 9th is the same as the 2nd, they just generally call it a 9th in chord names) which is B.
wat.

I made this one up a couple days ago, and I'm using it in a song...

G/E, Bm, Cadd9, D (with some hammer-ons)
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

I'm not going to tab anything out since these are all absic chords you can find on the internet..
But some simple chords that sound very nice together are:
E minor and C (like in Eleanor Rigby)
C, D, and G (Too many songs to mention)
A, D, and Dsus4
A, A7, D, and F
C, D, A minor, and G (like in Wish You Were Here)
A minor, D, and F
A minor and C (just a switch of one finger)

If you strum them together in whatever order, or fingerpick them once you get more used to it, you'll have a good base to work off of.
