Due to unexpected demand, I have written out a rough outline of the chords to Kotoba. These may be slightly confusing…but I am too lazy atm to write out a full transcription. If you really can’t work it out and you desperately want me to transcribe it fully, please comment and i’ll see what i can do.
Link to previous review: Kotoba
Please note I have added in some chord translations for the confusing ones (sorry I fail at proper chord names…they are so confusing!!!)
Kotoba – Izumi Katou [chords]
Generally: RH plays chord while LH plays bass note of chord.
** also this is incredibly irritating but the chords don’t line up with the words exactly though i’ve tried to make them do so…editing format is different from published format : ( sorry! you should be able to work it out though, if you listen to the song enough.
Intro: (2 bars of 4 chords each) Csus2

Csus2 Am (Csus2 with A bass)
