But I will listen to you all day, yes I will

    +2 sounds amazing and it’s SUPER EASY ;)

  2. serinayeee

    Thank you so much for making this! Me and my friend are going to do this for another friend because she’s depressed, and doesn’t think she has anybody.

    • MyPrettyWeeper

      Tell your friend we care about her, and to stay alive for all of us. :)

    • Lauren21

      Tell her that she has friends who truly care about her. That she isn’t alone. Stay Alive |-/

    • danandphilneedapupper

      please please tell her she has lots of people like you guys that care about her. She’s not alone! Stay alive |-/

  3. iridisorbis

    Finger picking pattern I use for some parts:
    A + G string, C string, E string
    sounds like the piano

  4. TwentyOneTyjo

    The easiest is at -3. In the final chord that is Em you should change It for a G. It sounds better

  5. +2 is the easiest in my opinion!

  6. Thx though

  7. To be honest I would rather you end it with a Bb instead of a Gm

  8. microwavesmaster

    can’t play this without crying

  9. cherryblur

    It sounds better if you end it on Bb instead of Gm

  10. Smiling Cupcake

    This is so beautiful and fun to play! Thank you so much for making this❤

  11. demonplasticbeach

    This sounds so lovely, I can’t–

  12. DomingoEnFuego

    In second chorus instead of current chords I suggest playing Gm, Gm, D and Em on “…don’t take your life away from me”. I think it sounds closest to the original ;) Also, in the last chorus, it should be D, Cm and Bb on “…away from me”. Stay alive |-/

  13. its better if you end it on Bb

  14. what is the strumming pattern?

  15. d-udu? Thats what i use as a stumming pattern

  16. Abbydabbydoo2903
