My Sweet Lord

Here are the unplugged chord changes I use to play George Harrison's 1970 number one hit My Sweet Lord from his "All Things Must Pass" album. This is one of George Harrisons's best solo efforts. The chord progression is shown in the original key of E, however, it modulates a whole step to the key of F# after the bridge using the "C#7" as the pivot chord. The opening chorus progression is repeated a "I-VIm" relative minor vamp which comprises the first two chords of the doo-wop progression. The song is played in a moderate 4/4 tempo. The chord fingerings I use (in a Standard tuning) are as follows: F#m = 244222; B = x2444x; E = 022100; C#m = x46654; Fo7 = 1x010x; G#o7 = 4x343x; E7 = 020100; C#7 = x4342x; F# = 244322; Go7 = 3x232x; A#o = 6x565x; G#m = 466444; and C# = x4666x.
