    Finally!
    Thaaaaaaaank you so much! xxx

  • wayne649 says:

    Sounds quite nice (and is much easier to play) if you move all the notes up a step (not sure if that’s the right terminology). So Bdm becomes Am, Ad becomes G and Dd becomes C.

  • magician11 says:

    The verse that starts

    I just gotta, I just gotta know

    is actually

    I just wanna, I just wanna know

  • foofoo40489 says:

    awesome song. ^0^

  • Person of aus says:

    I got an easier version. Change ‘em’ to ‘am’ and ‘d’ to ‘c’ it is so much easier.

  • Person of aus says:

    But an amazing song. Thank you very much. Maybe also add ‘Que Sera’ by Justice Crew.

  • me says:

    good song but I find it easier to play if you change it to -6

  • MassPrimeSyndicate says:

    I found a version that sound better. I am an advanced player, but the easier way to play (Well, the course) is Am, F, and C. Then the very last line on the verse play Am, G, and C. There is a picking pattern for the chorus. You pluck the first three strings then play the 4th string with your thumb after the lyrics.

  • Ch@nt363 says:

    i love this song! i play Am, G, C with capo 1. still sounds like the real thing

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.
