  1. Its sonice song but so difficult!?

    • SisterDragon

      I really dont get why anonymous thinks its so difficult. In my opinion, i thi;k its really easy.

  2. Anyone know the strumming pattern??

    • Grace Keller

      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.

  3. PutDearEvanHansenSongsOnHere

    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

  4. 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!

  5. Spøøns and Spørks

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