  1. The chords do match perfectly, just make sure when you play Ab=G# your starting on the third fret ?

  2. I think maybe if you played +2 with a capo it may sound good…..I can’t be sure of that cause I can’t find my capo rn :/

  3. Nazrin Kemp

    Actually if you use C,G,Am,F it sounds way way better.

  4. +2 is better

  5. 1)The second Eb should be replaced by a Bb
    2)The Cm7 should be a normal Cm

  6. i dont think it’s right at all cuz it sounds terrible when I play it!

  7. UkuleleMonkey

    Sounds great +4! Nice one!

  8. AgentCsa

    I feel like that Cm7 chord is really not mixing well with the song

  9. Womblehunt

    There’s something about this I’m not feeling, it doesn’t quite match up properly
