I know cross_ide would be interested maybe others...
I put up a YT video of Higher from Gran Turismo CD.
Acoustic guitar- put a capo on 3rd fret
and the chords are (ignoring the capo):

Intro riff X2

Am Em F C
Am Em F C
Am Em F F#/D G

C Em Am G/Am F
C Em Am G/Am F F#/D

(repeat above then) F F#/D F F#/D Am Em F

C Em Am G/Am F
C Em Am G/Am F F#/D (Am +outro riffs)


(G/Am =302210 F#/D= 200230)

^really nice. Good to see that it's not too difficult. Bonus points for the D chord with the F# bass - one of my fave chords.

You got me thinking about how to play Cardigans song w/acoustic and voice it can be done if you pick the right song, especially if you're a male singing it.( I mentioned Live & Learn and
lyrically that would sound funny out of a guy's mouth!)
I'm not a great singer, usually just backing vocals- I like doing the harmonies.
Like you, I can sing some things in a higher range, people tell me I sing thom yorke pretty good- radiohead songs. I was picking my brain trying to remember who you sound like since I heard your beatles cover:
I think you sound like Kraig Johnson from Golden Smog.
I was really big into Americana artists like Jayhawks, Wilco, Son Volt, Calexico etc. back in the 90's maybe you could have a listen and find another cover to do there. ..

The Radiohead songs I've done are Exit Music for Film and Knives Out. Not sure how I do on the singing, though I like those chords a lot. Just listened to Golden Smog, yeah, that Americana scene is pretty cool. I almost always watch Wilco if they are on TV. Son Volt has a song on the "Feeling Minnesota" soundtrack, an old country tune called "Life through a Windshield". I actually did that acapella at an open-mic. But back to Knives Out, that song is so dreamy to me.
