Aimee Mann chords for 4th of july (Ver. 2)

Guitar chords with lyrics

  • Capo on 2nd
Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E)

Difficulty: Advanced

This song uses some pretty unique chord voicings and I tried to capture those here.
She also uses several walk downs and walk ups throughout the song that I haven't seen in other versions.

[Note on chorus - Between the A chord diagramE MajorE chord and the C#m7, walk up the low A chord diagramE MajorE string on each beat,
stopping at A chord diagramF#F# and G#. E.g. on the first chorus, the A chord diagramF#F# would fall on "My" and the g# would fall on "God"]

Generally, she plays the root(lowest string) on the downbeat and then strums for the 2 and the 3.
