Here’s a chord chart: deathinhisgrave-lead

Due to the overwhelming response to my commentary on the song “Death In His Grave”, I’ve decided to post this little how-to video with a chord chart.

I like to play the song with a capo on the second fret and use a “C” voicing where the key is in “D” but I chord like I’m playing in “C”.  I think it gives the song an older voicing which I personally like.  For example the verse chords would technically be D A Bm G but with capo on the 2nd fret, I would play them like they were C G Am F etc…

Need good new music? Here is some killer stuff you may have never heard about. All these folks are personal friends of mine and I wouldn’t recommend them if they weren’t all over my iPod right now.

The Embers Some of Kentucky’s best worship music.
Mark Mathis Songwriter from my home town. He also has anew FREE EP.
Glen Yoder Great young songwriter from central Kentucky.
Public Radio One of the best bands out of Charlotte, NC right now.
Flagship Brigade Some of these guys used to be in my band. They’re probably gonna be huge.
Aaron Strumple Great songwriting. Just released a sic new EP.
Agents of Future Pretty much the most creative worship music I’ve ever heard.
Please listen/enjoy/buy their music/ give them some love from JMM.
Skeleton Bones is a frequently requested song from my new album The Medicine. So finally I got around to posting a chart (or something like it). I will have a more legit looking chart in the near future. 
I use a capo on the second fret and I play mostly “G” and “C” shaped chords on the 12th fret to make the song in “E”. The rhythm comes form the way I hammer on my index finger on the top chords from an open string. This gives it the twang. The C#m can be a little tricky for this technique but if I can do it anyone can. 
I’ve also posted a couple of examples of chords so you can see the voicing. I don’t put the voicing on the chart because I usually don’t want the whole band playing the extra notes my guitar makes or it comes across a little Jazzy sounding. So I just didn’t the voicing in. However if you play “G” and “C” shaped chord on the 12th fret but leave the other strings open you will attain the desired effect. For the other chords like the “A” and “B” on the chorus I have posted some diagrams for you to see how I play them as they are not common but not difficult to play.
Also since I’ve noticed people singing and posting the wrong words. I’ve included the real lyrics to the song for your pleasure.
Skeleton Bones

Peel back our ribs again
And stand inside of our chest
We just want to love you
We just want to love you yeah

Peel back the veil a time
Let us see you with our naked eyes
We just want to love you
We just want to love you yeah

Skeleton bones stand at the sound
Of eternity on
The lips of the found
Grave stones roll
to the rhythm of the sound of you
Skeleton bones stand at the sound
Of eternity on
The lips of the found
Yeah so separate those doors
Let the sun of resurrection in

Oh let us
Adore the son of glory
Dressed in love
Open up your gates
Before him
Crown him
Stand him up

We want your blood to flow inside our body and
We want your wind inside our lungs
We just want to love you
We just want to love you yeah
We want your blood to flow inside our body and
We want your wind inside our lungs
We just want to love you
We just want to love you yeah

Skeleton bones stand at the sound
Of eternity on
The lips of the found
Grave stones roll
To the rhythm of the sound of you
Skeleton bones stand at the sound
Of eternity on
The lips of the found
yeah so separate those doors
And let the sun of resurrection in

Oh let us
Adore the son of glory
Dressed in love
Open up your gates
Before him
Crown him
Stand him up

Everything that breaths
Everything that breaths
Everything that breaths
