Welcome to West Texas chord chart

I went to the interwebs to try to find a good chord chart for this song, but there wasn’t much to find. What I did find was seriously lacking in the variety of chords suggested. What makes this song is all of the little chord variations… the G13, the D Aug Add 9… it’s a REALLY busy song, but you can’t simplify it to major chords and keep the flavor, so I decided to tackle it myself.

I ran this by Ben and he said it was OK to post. If anyone decides to check it out, let me know if you find any mistakes.

@Mark_Rocka THOSE are adult chords. :flushed: Currently I’m listening to Hulls’ version of Let it Snow. I love the swing chords.


LOL! That is the straight truth! I can’t remember the last time I had to slow a song down just to keep up with the chord progression. It sure is fun once you get it down, though, and there’s a beautiful left hand pattern that emerges once you get it down. The way it flows seems practically natural.

I have been working on swing chord shapes for a few months. The progress is slow.
