Acordes de Elephant Gun, de Beirut

Si bien este tema, la banda Beirut lo toca con ukelele, encontré una excelente adaptación para guitarra acá, lugar del cual proviene el resto del contenido de este post.

Update: Para los que, como mi amigo Humitos, quieren ver y escuchar el original, agrego un videíto de Youtube:

Note for Guitarists

The “low” string on a ukulele is higher than the next two subsequent strings. So, while the strings go G C E A, the relative pitches (1 being low, 4 being high) are 3 1 2 4. To replicate the sound, you would have to replace your D string with something much thinner (i.e. whatever you use for your high E) and tune it up an octave.
