  1. crazy cat lady

    -3 is the best

  2. Use alternate barre chords for this tune and it’s a snap in the given key (which is accurate to the recording)

  3. i find that +2 sounds the most like the song its also pretty easy

  4. If you have transposed -3 and find the E chord difficult i found the E7 chords sounds just as good(maybe better)

  5. +4 isnt too hard! Key is a little different but its easy to adjust c:

  6. -1 is easier

  7. jaaaaaaackkkkk

    whineybop its easier if you bar with your thumb

  8. Whitneybop

    Is there an easier alternative for Db?

      instead of trying to use three fingers for the top three strings and stretching your pinky finger over to the 4th fret, just bar the 1st fret
