Chord names: Not defined
Abusive:
Comment:
-2 and 4 in the chord line mark the beats 2 and 4 to make it clear that the chord shift to C occurs on the 3rd beat
-on every E chord you have to play an ascending bass line on the e string (E on beat 3, F# on beat 4, leading into the G on the first beat of the G chord)
-chord symbol right above the beginning of the syllable = exactly on the beat
-chord symbol above the second letter of the syllable = syllable actually starts on the anacrusis
-for the real country feeling you should play it with alternate bass notes
-for extra country flavour you can decorate some D chords with pull-offs with your middle finger
