I've lost control and I don't want it back

  2. Musicaltrash

    Strumming pattern ?

  3. lanemadison

    +4 and -3 have the most simple chords

  4. Glittery Lamp

    I really like the way -1 sounds with a capo on the first fret, and it’s much easier.

  5. I’m just going to point out a mistake in the lyrics, on the tab it says “I’ve been hijacked” the actual lyrics is “i dont want it back”

  6. If you want to impress people by plucking the song, I’ve come to help! Haha, jk. But really, I figured out the little tune that starts off at the beginning of the song and keeps playing till the end. I like plucking it for the intro then doing the rest of the chords.
    (Sorry if it looks confusing, it’s pretty easy once you get the hang of it)

  7. Is it just me or does Ab not sound right?

    • youruncleviv

      Yeah, Ab doesn’t sound right to me either.

      • You guys might’ve not been playing it at the right time :) I know, your comments are from a year ago lol. But Ab is correct

  8. -1 sounds great AND it’s easy

  9. what is the strum pattern

  10. -1 sounds great

  11. +4 is the easiest

  12. Cecil Palmer

    I find that -3 is a bit easier to play

  13. cybertrash

    transposing it to +2 is definitely much easier :)
