I Believe In Dinosaurs chords

While I'm working away at the Lighthouses song and video, I thought it might be nice to post up chords & tabs for my songs so you kids can play them yourselves. Just off the top of my head, here's the chords for "I Believe In Dinosaurs".

Verse
Emajor
F#minor
Emajor
F#minor - Amajor (x02220, dropping to A5 x02200)
(repeat)

Bridge
Dmajor
C#major
A5 (x02200)
F#minor
Dmajor (x57755 dropping to x57675)
C#major
Bminor (x24432 dropping to x24230)

Chorus
Emajor
F#minor
Emajor

G#minor (x66400)
Bmajor (799800)
F#minor (x44200)
C#minor

Bmajor
Amajor (577600 dropping to 477600)
F#minor

Middle bit ("And I don't believe...")
F#minor (x44200)
G#minor (x66400)
Amajor (577600)
Bmajor (799800)
(repeat)
G#minor
Amajor
Bmajor
F#minor
Amajor
Bmajor

And there you have it, I think that's right. I thought about tabbing the riff but it's quite difficult here on blog - try and work it out yourself by ear (clue: it's based around the Emajor scale, then F#minor scale, in time with the chords).

You may notice I'm a fan of the open strings at the top - this is probably a habit of playing acoustic guitar, where it's especially suitable, but you can play the full chords if you like.

Have fun, let me know if there's any song you'd like to see here :)
