  1. Thanks for posting. Wonderful that you worked through the entire tune. Would have been great if you worked through the &3&4 G/B (Cmaj7) to C to D to G to G7 walk up from the break down Em that starts the bridge. Also It's a Cmaj7 in the bridge…I can hear the B on the top of the chord. Also C to Cmaj7 for the last time through the Em to C part in the breakdown section. Again thanks…helped me affirm I had figured out the right chords. Wonder if they rehearsed the starts and stops between the vocals, bass and guitar in the breakdown section or just went with feel…there's no discernable tempo in that section but the meter is consistent between the front end and back end of the song which tells me the Muscle Shoals drummer and all the other players had great time or they turned the click track back on.

  2. Close, but no cigar!
