    My older brother played this once and I absolutely loved it! I was just getting into Dodie then

  2. This is what I do for the picking/ strumming. I pick the c string once, then the e and a strings together. I do that four times per chord, and it sounds almost exactly like the original. Also, I don’t use Bbm. Hope this helps!!

  3. Personally I think it sounds nice plucking C them E A together. It does mean the Am chord doesn’t play but it simply means slightly prolonging the C6 chord.

    As for the Bbm chord, whilst playing Bm, when it comes to the last finger picking for it you simply slide your hand down one fret and pick A E again then take your hand off to continue on with the C6.

    Bm
    G —————-
    C 2—2—2—2—
    E -2-2-2-2-2-2-2~1
    A -2-2-2-2-2-2-2~1

  4. I play this +3 and it still works for my alto voice :)

  5. randon phan

    i would prefer plucking the middle two strings and the outer two strings for the entire song >_<

  6. for the strumming pattern just pick the outer two strings once and then the two inner ones twice :)

  7. thisisnotapipe

    i believe that plucking the g (first) string and then the c,e and a (last three) works perfectly and sounds almost exactly like dodie’s, but you may recall she is playing on a baritone. on a concert ot soprano it sounds better if you pluck the c and then the a and e.

  8. u forgot that lil “mhm” at the very end

  9. An easy way to play is
    F, Am, Bb, C
    All the way through except at ‘im Afraid of the things in my brain, but we can stay here and laugh away the fear’ could be Bb, Bbm, F, C
    This makes it easier for me and I hope it helps you :)

  10. Anjaaaaaaaaaaa

    I usually just play D instead of Am6 (it’s easier and it sounds better to me)

  11. JOSHDUNISMYHUN

    Secret for the mad plz

  12. I personally think that this song sounds better with one single strum for each note. You can play it the way dodie does or the other’s suggestions, but I personally feel this song only needs one strum. It is such a soft song (if you get what I’m trying to say) that you can just use mostly your voice.

  13. something that sounds fairly good: plucking E A throughout the whole song which can be done without the chords. if that’s the sound you’re going for

  14. For those commenting saying that the Am6 or the C6 sounds wrong, it is because she is plucking throughout the whole song now strumming. For Am6 she is plucking the C string then the G string and E string simultaneously, and for C6 she is plucking the same strings (C, then G and E together). Hope this helps!

  15. I play it on +2, although I did change one chord.

  16. Daniel Howell

    I personally like to play it on -2 with a capo on the second fret I think it sounds beautiful that way. Wonderful song.

  17. Is there an alternate chord instead of Bbm, whenever I try and play it it doesn’t sound right

  18. I personally love this so much!!! the cords are easier tan I thought they would be :) tysm!!!
