Owl City "Fireflies" Guitar Chords and Lyrics

Although this is pretty much a techno or synth-pop song, I liked it so much I decided to have a go at working out a playable version for guitar.

I think it worked out quite well, considering - key was E flat, which was a bit tricky for early learners, so I stuck a capo on 3rd fret, and chorded it in C.

Owl City ( a.k.a. Adam Young ) is a relatively new act, hadn't heard any of their stuff before, but "Fireflies", from their 2nd album "Ocean Eyes" got loads of airplay, Adam having built up a huge following on MySpace before releasing the debut album "Maybe I'm Dreaming".

I think "Fireflies" works ok without the synth effects, and once you use the Capo on the 3rd fret, the chords are C, F, G, Em and Am - a nice enough set of chords, playable by people at most levels.

I've uploaded my chords version of "Fireflies" to my Rock songs chords page, you can find it at the link below:
