"The Story I Heard"
Blind Pilot
3 Rounds and a Sound

Capo 1
All chords relative to capo.

Chords used:
F7/C     (F7)   1x3210
F11             1x3230
F7sus2/C (F*)   1x3010
Fadd9    (F9)   1x3213
C        (C)    x32010
Cadd9    (C9)   x32030

Notes to playing it JUST like Blind Pilot:

1)  He does this little pinky thing with his F chord.  First he'll emphasize the open E
the F7, then he'll emphasise the D on the F11, then back to the E string on the F7, and
he'll do a sort of melodic fall from the F9-F7-F11-F7.  (emphasize the notes, G-E-D-C).  
great video is found on youtube by searching, Blue Ribbon Vision @ the riverside
 In fact, in that video he breaks his A string (on purpose!) to avoid hitting that nasty 
(which I included for the C chords)

2) When strumming verse, he does a weird pull of thing with the 2nd fret on the G
but it's VERY brief, don't over do it!  The idea is a F7-F*-F7- real quick.

3) When strumming the bridge (Amin chord), he uses pull offs on the 2nd fret of the D
G strings.  He also plays the f7 chord for only 1 strum!

4)  He changes the strumming pattern towards the end (on the chorus section) to
a melody involving the D on the B string  (3rd fret).  I'm too lazy to tab it out, 
have
use your ear.  Check out the video, it'll help loads!
