    Is it just me or does cmaj7 not work with the song? I tried c and I think it worked a LITTLE better but idk

  2. Rehilty7

    Does anyone know the strum pattern

  3. AureliaJellyfish152

    -2 also sounds pretty good especially the chours

  4. You wanna know what I changed, that I think sounds a bit better? I changed the last Cmaj7 at the end of the chorus to an Am. Not that the Cmaj7 was bad, but I wanted to add something extra in there

  5. In case you were wondering (since I found the starting note difficult to find), I’m pretty sure the vocals start on the 2nd fret of the A string (on a B)

  6. I like this song… I want to sleep when I ‘m always hearing this… ??

  7. I played the cmaj7 as am and I think it sounded really good. But just cmaj7 with standard tuning does not sound right. Other than that I really like the tab!

  8. This is a really nice tab and beautifully done. I would suggest C in place of cmaj7. It fits MUCH better. Give it a try!

  9. I love Taylor, this song, and The Hunger Games

  10. Can’t read the hammer hammer blah blah blah…please please please help me…need to learn.

    • Hi Maxx. put your first finger on the G string 2nd fret, your 2nd finger on the A string 2nd fret, and 3rd finger on the A string 3rd fret. Now play the strings G then E then A…But when you play the A string, pluck it then pull your 3rd finger off immediately. That is what they mean by pull off. Now make an Em shape and play the strings C then E the A. now for the last segment. Put your first finger on the second fret of the C string and when you pluck it slam your third finger down onto the 4th fret immediately. That is what a hammer on is. Now play that 4th fret one more time and then put your 3rd finger on the 2nd fret of the E string then play the 4th fret of the C string again. Now play a G chord twice. Hope this helps!

  11. Hahaha this is awesome… Love the chords but should the Cmaj7 be a C? But either way, I loved it… Hahaa this is great, sounds exactly like the original!

  12. quietcellist

    Anyone here listen to twenty one pilots or dodie?
    Or watch dan and phil?

  13. Holy hell, this song gives me the strongest nostalgia ever. I’m so glad this is on here even though listening to it makes me sad lol

  14. When it’s so nice, but u can’t play it cause u can’t strum ? I don’t understand these comments at all with the 3p2 and stuff I’m so confused, could a kind soul help me pls?

  15. cmaj7 sometimes sounds veryyyyyy stupid, so i preffer am an it sounds much better

  16. If you use C instead of Cmaj7 it sounds a lot better.?

  17. I found it sort of difficult to pull out the starting note, so just FYI the starting note for singing is the second fret on the A string

  18. For me the tab sounds wrong, along with the ones from the comments, is it just me?
