The intro is played on ukelele but this way sounds decent on guitar. And I tried to put in the count for the strumming pattern; I hope it's right but I haven't done that in years so please correct me if it's not. Also, the second half of the verses has a distinct rhythm so listen to the song for it. Enjoy!
