    Amazing song! I’ve been waiting for this one for soooooo long! Great adaptation!

  • Anna says:

    Thank you so much! I wanted to play this song since I first heard it, and had no idea it’d be so easy. Love love LOVE it!

  • PutDearEvanHansenSongsOnHere says:

    If switching between the chords on the automatic transposure is difficult for you, transpose to +5; It’s like 10x easier in my opinion :-D

    P.S. Anyone who reads this PLEASE put some DEH songs on hereee

  • Lellie says:

    Anyone know the strumming pattern??

    • Grace Keller says:

      I just go down, down up down, down up down, down up down, down up down, etc throughout the whole song and it works pretty well.
