  1. ok, in the previous comment i wasnt precise and was wrong on the beat..some correction. if you listen to the banjo version as in Scrubs, they place one chord between Gb and B in the intro and in general. if playing in original tune, just take your 2nd finger off and it’ll do :)

  2. Romansmoll

    Hey! i think these chords are pretty solid but if you listen carefully, you may hear the 2 extra chords being shortly played between 1st and the 2nd aand beween second and the 3rd lines.
    my suggestion would be :
    line 1:G…..cut it with “D”
    line 2:C…..cut it with “Emaj”

    give it a try ) works for me))
