Waiting For The Light To Turn Green chords by Gretchen Peters

Gretchen Peters chords for Waiting for the light to turn green

Guitar chords with lyrics

Tuning: Standard

Album: The secret of life

CAPO: 2nd fret (Sounds in the key of A chord diagramA augmentedA)

Chord names and fret positions are relative to the capo:
A chord diagramG+G  = 3x0003    A chord diagramGsus2Gsus2 = 3x0233    D4        = 200233
A chord diagramG9G9 = 3x0203    A chord diagramCadd9Cadd9 = x32033    A chord diagramG/BG/B       = x20033
A chord diagramG4G4 = 3x0013    A chord diagramCsus2Csus2 = x30033    A chord diagramCmaj7Cmaj7     = x32003
A chord diagramG6G6 = 3x2003    A chord diagramC majorC     = x32013    Cmaj7sus6 = x32203
A chord diagramG5G5 = 3x0033    A chord diagramD MajorD     = 200232

The chords above are the ones Gretchen uses live. You could play the A chord diagramG5G5
as a power chord as on the record (355xxx), but the way Gretchen plays
the A chord diagramG5G5 makes it a much smoother transition to the A chord diagramC majorC chords. She also
breaks the A chord diagramG5G5 riff up by playing an occasional open bottom E,
and sometimes hammering on an A chord diagramE MajorE on the 4th string, (as in the intro)
which in both cases makes it a passing G6. The A chord diagramGsus2Gsus2 is something
Gretchen plays live on her acoustic, but is only subtly suggested on
the record, as the A chord diagramG5G5 power chord dominates the mix.
