Arcade Fire - Rococo Guitar Chords

Arcade Fire

alternative rock, canadian indie, chamber pop, garage rock

Song versions: 1 2 3
Chords: C, G, Am
*** NOTE: DIFFERENT VERSION THAN NORMAL ***

Strum Pattern: Basically after every chord is played,
stop it with a slap to the strings, then move to the next
chord. As I said before, this allows the song to
be played much more easily, but it also gives the song
a bit of solo percussion, and a nice rhythm. It's also
very fun to play it this way. 

Just to be safe I'll mark the word when the slap
is placed with "//" , but in places without words, there's usually
one second in between the strum and slap. 

Chords: C, G, Am
