Capo 1 to match the recording

So hey! This is a beautiful song. I've tried to mimic the piano as much 
as I could with this fingerstyle rendition. It’s not perfect, but it's 
pretty close. As always, I'm open to suggestions and feedback.

Really the song is broken into four parts which are repeated, and that's 
how I have it organized here. The full tab comes first, and underneath the 
tab are beat indications (* = downbeat, ^ = upbeat). After the full tab I 
break it down section by section and offer tips and fingering suggestions.

INTRO/VERSE PATTERN
This one is pretty straight forward. Most of it doesn't require a barre. 
I move my first finger from the A string to the E string (3rd fret) for the 
second measure, and then I move the same finger to the high E string 
(2nd fret) for the third measure. For the final G, I barre the 3rd fret and 
keep my third finger on the 4th fret of the G string. This helps for a 
smooth transition.

PRE-CHORUS
There is more going on in the piano, but I think this does pretty well.
The tricky part is with the G chord, switching fingers to maintain the
note G while moving the other notes up and down the fretboard. I keep my
second finger down on the B string as a guide while switching.

CHORUS
This is the most involved part of the song. A lot of the chord changes 
happen just before or after the beat, and there are some interesting timing
changes. I will break it down measure by measure.

MEASURE 1: Bm7  Gmaj7
In the first measure, I barre the Bm7 and use my pinky to reach the 
fifth fret. To facilitate the change of note in the G chord (from 5 to 2), 
I use a crooked barre. I put the end of my finger on the 3rd fret of the 
low E and have it stretch over to the 2nd fret of the high E string.

MEASURE 2: D   Em
The main issue here is the timing. The first two beats happen as normal, 
with the typical strong downbeat and then the weaker upbeat. However, the 
measure ends with three strong pulses in a row without the upbeat in 
between. Most of the song has four beats per measure. This one really is 
the length of 3 and 1/2. It can be counted "One and Two and One Two Three." 
In musical terms, it is a measure of 2/4 and a measure of 3/8.

MEASURE 3: Bm7  Gmaj7
Here again the timing is strange - this measure is a total of 4 and 1/2 
beats long, making up for the lost half beat of the prior measure. It could 
be counted "One and Two and Three and One Two Three." Musically speaking, 
now we have a measure of 3/4 followed by a measure of 3/8.

MEASURE 4: D   Em
Now things are getting a bit more normal. The very last note in this 
measure is the 2nd fret of the high E string, a note she also sings in the 
melody. It happens early, before the beginning of the next measure. I end 
up playing that note with a full barre in preparation for the following 
measure.

MEASURE 5: Bm7  Gadd9
Pretty straightforward for the Bm7 chord, a normal barre Bm7 with the 
addition of the pinky on the 5th fret. For the Gadd9 barre chord, to 
maintain the note on the 5th fret I continue using my pinky. To play the 
note on the D string I either lean back my ring finger far enough to fret 
two notes or I lean it back just far enough to mute the D string. There’s 
plenty of space in the tab to fill in extra notes if you want.

MEASURE 6 and 7: Nice and easy compared to the rest.

BRIDGE:
A nice little addition to the song. For the Bm7 measure I rock the barre on
and off to make the change between the 2nd fret and open on the high E 
string. For the Gmaj7 measures I simply take on and off my pointer finger 
from the 2nd fret. In the second measure of D (the 7th measure of the 
bridge) I add my pinky to the D chord to be able to then pick the interval 
she uses on the piano. You can leave that out, pick it the same way, and 
I’m sure it will work just fine.
