Box Full O Honey
There are actually a few ways you can play this song. The Key is Ebminor, so you can it using barre chords or by CAPOING the 6th fret to play it in Aminor. You can also lower tuning 1/2 step to Eb and play it open in eminor (this is what is probably happening on record.) Or, you can always play it in Eminor open with regular tuning, knowing it will be 1/2 higher than the record. I transcribed it as sounded on the recording - at the bottom is out the alternate chords. If the key is too high to sing you can transcribe to Dm or the capo one or two frets if you use the capo. ENJOY!!!

E Ebm A Box full o' honey - if you capo 6 and play it that way the chords are: Verse: Am, C, G, D Chorus: Am, Bb, F, E If you either lower the tuning to Eb or play it in Em the chords are: Verse - Em, G, D, A Chorus - Em, F, C, B One other way to play is to CAPO 1 and play it in Dm, as is tabbed in another posting.
