Understanding Chords
Understanding by Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band

This song was previously unreleased by Bob Seger until the 2003 release of the Greatest 
2 album.  It's from the motion picture "Teachers"

The words are correct and the chords, well, as far as I can tell, are good, well, maybe ok?
But hey, knock yourself out! It's a good, easy song any schlub can sing and belt out on 
string!

Standard tuning.

Intro- Slowly drop your pick down on an A chord, strumming only the A,D,G,B strings, 
strum a 4 count beat on chords A(4 beats) D(4) A(3) D(1) A(1)
D(1) A(1) D(1) E(6) D(3) and A.  This is also the chord progression throughout the 
of the song.

A
D

About the artist behind Understanding Chords:

Bob Seger (born May 5, 1945) is an American rock and roll singer-songwriter and musician.

After years of local Detroit-area success, recording and performing in the mid-1960s, Seger achieved superstar status by the mid-1970s and continuing through the 1980s with the Silver Bullet Band. A roots rocker with a classic raspy, shouting voice, Seger was first inspired by Little Richard and Elvis Presley. He wrote and recorded songs that dealt with blue-collar themes. Seger has recorded many rock and roll hits, including "Night Moves", "We've Got Tonight", "Like a Rock" and also co-wrote the Eagles number one hit "Heartache Tonight." His iconic signature song "Old Time Rock and Roll" was named one of the Songs of the Century in 2001. With a career spanning five decades, Seger continues to perform and record today.

Seger was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
