NOTE:In order for this to sound correct one must bend the pitch lower by about a half step
then back to the Gmaj7 pitch. Isaac bends the strings the the back of the bridge on his red
Whicca guitar. If you dont have suitable bridge to bend or a bar of sorts, then just quickly
slide the Gmaj7 chord down by a fret to the F#maj7 chord and quickly back to the Gmaj7. If you
know this song, you'll understand what Im talking about. You'll also notice this finger position
sets you up real nice-like for the verse.
