NOTE: I don't actually know if these chords are "sus" chords, but I had
to call them something!  Also, on the first two lines of the chorus and
frequently on the verse, it is better to somewhat muffle the chords so
that the rhythm can be heard but the actual notes barely heard.  Also,
the song can be played in regular tuning with the same chords, but I
think it sounds much better this way (and this is what J.M. actually does).
Also, please post if you know any J.M. songs in their actual
tuning.  I hear that of all her guitar songs, she only did around
two of them in standard tuning!
