-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:ndermawan

Tuning: Standard
No Capo

Using any inversion of Em7 or Em is up to you, still sounds decent.

Likewise, Am or Am7 are also interchangeable, seems ok still.


Picking patterns in appendix.

Also, dat catchy as guitar hook.

============================================================================================

Picking Patterns:
-----------------
Trying to get the rhythm similar to the synth/piano

With the 3 strums after the bass note, the way I play it is using:

My index, middle + ring finger to pluck the strings whilst going 
UP DOWN UP (using nails-side on DOWN pluck) and then just tap the strings after to mute.


Verses + Prechorus:
-------------------
    Am               Em            G            Am
e|---------------------------------2-2-2-x-----------------|
B|-----5-5-5-x-------8-8-8-x-------3-3-3-x------5-5-5-x----|
G|-----5-5-5-x-------7-7-7-x-------4-4-4-x------5-5-5-x----|
D|-----7-7-7-x-------9-9-9-x--------------------5-5-5-x----|
A|----------------7----------------------------------------|
E|--5-----------5-------------0-3-----------3-5----------3-| & Repeat



Chorus + Post-chorus lick: Pluck Staccato, don't let ring
--------------------------

    Am         Em         G          Am
e|------------------------2---2---------------|
B|--5---5------8---8------3---3------5---5----|
G|--5---5------7---7------4---4------5---5----|
D|--7---7------9---9-----------------7---7----|
A|-------------7---7--------------------------|
E|--5---5--------------0--3---3---3--5-3-5-3--| & Repeat
