ACCIDENTALLY IN LOVE by Counting Crows
------------------------------------------------------

This a simplified version of the lead. Performed this with my bandmates a couple times.
but chords are supposed to just be:
G-C-G-C Em A C for verse,
GACD for chorus...

//I like using the bridge pickup on my strat at this part. To add a little oomph
with the overdrive pedal.

s- slide
p- pull off
h- hammer on
~- let it ring
^-bend up, pluck.

//I switch to neck here to soften the sound//

(if you're lead, one strum each. rhythm should take care of this cause accents in
music are awesome)

Well maybe I'm in love, think about it every time

//keep playing that^^

So I said, "I'm a snowball running"
Running down into the spring
That's coming all this love melting under
Blue skies belting out sunlight, shimmering love

Well baby I surrender to the strawberry ice cream
Never ever end of all this love
Well I didn't mean to do it
But there's no escaping your love
