The Shins - Black Wave chords and lyrics

As promised, I am continuing to include a Shins song in each monthly update.

Sticking with the latest album ( "Wincing the night away" ), this time I've gone for "Black Wave", one of my favourite tracks from the album.

I've worked out my interpretations of the chords and lyrics - somewhat surprisingly it consists of just three easy chords - G major, E minor and B minor. Obviously impossible to recreate the original sound with just three chords on an acoustic guitar, but the intent of my site ( and this blog ) is to provide playable songs for those in the early learning stages. You can still get a lot of satisfaction ( and fun ) from playing 'busking' versions of your favourite songs.

Anywaze - you'll find my interpretation of "Black Wave" on my guitar chords website at the link below:
