“Calling You Out” isn’t necessarily the easiest song to learn, but once you know the chords, you’ll find that it’s the easiest song to play.
Like much of Here Goes Nothing, “Calling You Out” is written in the key of E, and is a typical show of my love of drone chords. I’ve tabbed it below as a straight key-of-E song (because the actual names of the chords would drive us all crazy), but it should be noted that when I’m actually playing it, I’m using the drone-chord versions of these chords, leaving the 1st and 2nd strings open:
I’m using my thumb to make the bass notes on the 6th string. Note that for the A chord, I leave the 5th and 6th string open as well — I found that you just don’t need all those fingers to make a nice jangly sound, just a good sense of the identity of the chord.
V2. We’ve all got our share of sorrow in our lives
