|English: Sara Bareilles live at De Melkweg Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 16th June 2008 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)|
I like to play Sara Bareilles' Love Song. Another favorite of mine is Manhattan because the tempo is a slow shuffle with 3/4 time signature. I play it in the Key of A. I believe she wrote this song after ending a long-lasting relationship.
If you like Sara's style of music, you'll find other song chords in Sara Bareilles - The Blessed Unrest Songbook.
