Title:  The Answer
Artist:  Shane Barnard, Shane Everett
Album:  Psalms, the re-released version

I went to a recent Shane Barnard concert in Minneapolis and they played
this new song.  All I can say is that it's awesome...and pretty easy.
Since I can't name chords very well, I'll just use abbreviations like
WE (weird "E" chord).  I figure someone else will correct it soon.
E-mail me at for any questions you might have.  You
can get a recording of this song at Audiogalaxy, or buy the's
a good one.

Yep, sounds pretty close. The "weird E" is called a Bsus4/Eb. The "weird B" is called Bsus4/Bb. Also, try an E6/G# in between the two A's of the chorus. It's played 4X9600 (easiest to slide to if you play the Asus2's like this: 5X7600). Just deaden the 5th string with your top finger. Slide that new A up two frets and you have Shane's Bsus4. These complex chords sound better and look tougher while still being easy to play ;-). This is the best sounding version of the song for those not using a cut or foote capo. (or for those times when you don't have one handy) Keep Strummin'
