  2. sounds good to me, you can also do the plucking pattern like this though:
    A|3- – -3- – -3- – -2- – -0- – -0- – -0- – – – – –
    E|0- – -0- – -0- – -0- – -1- – -1- – -1- – – – – –

  5. Ukutabs lover

    @lori- Actually, it was partially right, it’s “no need for greed or hunger” “nothing to kill or die for” comes later in the song.

  6. I think that the chords are correct, but sometimes in wrong places. The part G-C-G7 sounds good only when played like this:
    G G C G7
    Living life in peace
    The chords C-CMaj7-E-E7 are also correct but should be put at the end of a line:
    F G C-CMaj7-E-E7
    You may say I’m a dreamer etc.

  7. I tried to add a bit of John Lennon’s piano in there and it made it sound better. In between the first 4 verse lines (of each verse) pluck [1-2-3] on the A string. For the fourth finger on the first fret and pluck the A string twice. Example:
    Imagine there’s no heaven A [1-2-3]
    It’s easy if you try A [1-2-3]
    No hell below us A [1-2-3]
    Above us only sky A [1-1]

  8. Zach the e is right but there are many variations.
