@Peter Wolf ,thank you .

 For the life of me I could not understand the bit G/E A/D  it was the D that I couldnt get my brain around ,IT's a D7 with the F# in the bass now my fingers work they kept tangling up at that cord in the tab its just 2 string,All learning together,

Cheers Dave

Hi Corey's, I'm watching your hands

 

It looks like you are just fretting normal open chords, and picking individual string in rhythm (with walkdowns the first Gs)

The chord sequence for a verse seems to be

 

G D

G D

G G7

C C

G/E A/D

Turnaround G

 

Is that correct?
