Paolo Nutini chords for Tricks of the trade

Guitar chords with lyrics

This is my first ever tab, feel free to comment.

I watched a youtube clip of Paolo playing this live at Eden Sessions and it sounded spot on.
No capo, open A chord diagramD MajorD tuning for a full rich sound.
He even comments at the beginning of the clip about the tuning, which makes this song incredibly easy
to play and sound great. There may be a string or 2 that's not quite right, but for the most part it
sounds just like how he plays it.

I don't know the name of the chords in this tuning so I'll just tab them, give each a basic name,
then show you where each chord should be played in relation to the lyrics.
Listen to the song for strumming pattern....good luck!
