I Cant Make You Love Me Chords

   
Song Name: I Can't Make You Love Me (Bon Iver Cover)
Artist:    Bon Iver

This is my first tab. I originally compiled all the chords on the piano for myself 
and figured it would be cool to put up here as well. 

The other version on UG didn't seem quite right, but it did have the general gist 
of the song.

I'm 99.9% sure these chords are correct. Their placement in relation to the lyrics 
was a challenge, however, due to differences in rhythm between Justin's piano in 
the video and what you would likely play on guitar. So if the sync doesn't feel 
exactly right in certain spots - then play what you think sounds good. I would 
honestly just listen to the song for the nuances and go from there.

Here's the video for reference:

I'm fairly new to guitar (compared to piano) so please let me know if any of the 
chords below have more appropriate fingerings (or if there are any other corrections)!

Incredible song. 

Enjoy.
