BbBb chord
I met you in the dark

Wave them goodbye

That night

  1. +2 sounds the best plus it’s really easy

  2. ♥️this song!

  3. #Love this song, me and my friends did it for our spring concert.

  4. PICKING PATTERN!!!

    A|–5-2–2-5-2—–5-2—0-2-2-2-1
    E|3—-3-2—–2-3—–3-0——–
    C|2——2——-4——-0——–
    G|——————————–

    Sorry if it’s not accurate I’ve never written a tab like this but reply if you want me to try explain the timing, or just listen to the original and try to match it up x

  5. For fingerpicking I did, 2-4 then pluck 3+4, The closest i got to the song!

  6. k8lynsm1th

    hey– really good way to strum this song is two down strums, slam on the strings, then two more down strums

  7. but on-3 i would recommend using an f chord instead of a c in some places

  8. this is the fingerpicking pattern i use: 4-2-3-2-3

  9. +2 and -3 are great!!!

  10. Laurel Williams

    Would it sound right if I used a pick??

  11. DoctorsGirl

    I want this song to be played so bad when I get married. I cry every time.

  12. I cannot finger pick to save my life so the strumming pattern I used was
    DUD D or DUD DU
    and it’s kind of played slowly. If you listen to the song it sounds similar.

  13. Hah, I didn’t even know you could play it like that, I use a simpler C G Am And F cord with a more expert strumming pattern, that I created myself. But I guess this way is alright too.

  14. Plucking pattern
    A–52—50—52—53-3_2-|
    E—-3—-2—-3———|
    C-2—-2—-4—-0——-|
    G————————|

  15. STRUMMING PATTERN
    dowm,chuck,down,down,up,down,up,down-up

    this is the easiest to me because it sounds like the song and i cannot fingerpick for my life so for beginners just search up how to chuck

  16. Does anyone have a plucking pattern for this song that isn’t too hard but not super easy as well? I’m a beginner but want something a little challenging but easy to remember

  17. Hawaii808

    -5 is super easy and sounds great as well! Check it out.
