Old Crow Medicine Show chords for James river blues

Guitar chords with lyrics

This is a great song of the Old Crow Medicine Show's album Big Iron World. I dig the vocal
harmony's and even solo on a acoustic guitar  you can add little fiddly bits to liven it up.
The chords are written using the shape, though on the record they use a capo on the 3rd fret.
Enjoy .

To spice it up a little I like to do a ascending fifth run down from the fifth  fret on the
high A chord diagramE MajorE when you do a A chord diagramD MajorD chord, from the fifth fret to the third to the second to 0 fret and
then accent on the root note the octave above the bass, it kind of mimics the fiddle on the
record, then just pick the A chord diagramG+G chord and hammer on 0-2 fret on the A chord diagramA augmentedA string to fill the parts
where there is no singing.
