FOUR CORNERED NIGHT
(I figured all of these out by ear one night, so
if you're going to take it, PLEASE credit me.
My name is Chris Caulder. Thanks!)

All of these chords should all be pretty damn accurate...
if you think I'm wrong, let me know!

Note:
Most of the time, when there's a "slash" chord (D/F#) it usually means you play a power chord and you drop your index finger back a fret... for example, with D/F#, play:

E -----
B -----
G -----
D --5--
A --5--
E --2--

 

There are two songs where this is prominent - "One Summer Last Fall" (the "I'm starting to see" part) and "You're Having The Time Of My Life" (chorus). And various other places.
