  1. PenguinPlayer

    +2 is easier for me

  2. whats the strumming patter?

  3. I third it, just in case people wanted more assurance lol, use Eb (from top to bottom string it’s 3331) :) sounds much better and is much easier

  4. Yeah that E should be an Eb

  5. ^^^^that was for the 2 half steps up version.

  6. F can be used in place of Gb for easier chord–sounds well placed, too.

  7. The chords are a little wrong – the E should be a D#/Eb.
