I think that if you use
-1
-1
-2
-3
-0
-0
for the F chord that it sounds more like the acoustic version he plays.

good job but in this acoustic version there are no power chords except the part she sings "no, no, no..." and the following verse. {played like this: F5 F5/D F5/Bb Csus4 C} I've given it 3 stars. Veveboi
