  • EszterBallai says:

    i play the intro like this! sorry i can read tabs a bit i think but cant write them so i’ll just try to explain….
    finger C and pluck the 2nd and 4th string four times. Then finger Em, pluck the 2nd and 4th string and repeat it four times :)The repeat alll over again :))

  • cosmix says:

    Dmaj7 & G#min is alternative

  • zeekeek says:

    EsaterBallai I have no idea how to write tabs either! I can’t even read them. But I get your explenation and thanks! I have to say, it sounds great. The only thing I do differently is pluck 8 times instead of 4.

Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming patterns, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
