About this tab version
Standard Tuning. No capo necessary.
the way Ed Sheeran plays this live is fingerpicking 
throughout the whole song following these chords.
You can add some rhythm to your right hand to make it sound better too!

No capo 
Standard Tuning

Just play these chords on repeat throughout the whole song
     G#m      C#m       E        F#

You can also play it using the chords and some strumming cause it will still sound good. Just play 
these chords and repeat them throughout the whole song: 

The Strumming I use is DOWN UP DOWN UP slightly fast!
G#m   C#m  E  F#
