Handbags & Gladrags Chords

   
** Handbags and Gladrags **
    ** Stereophonics **

This is an easy way to play the classic. This is best played in an acoustic set with 2 guitars
one lightly strumming the chords and the other overlapping with a simple 'Ronan Keating' style
rake picking. Try it out i hope you agree.
