This guy is the singer from Rudimental's song 'Feel the Love'

Really good voice in my opinion and I want to tab this out for myself as much as 
I'm also doing it for those of you who know and want to play this song.

Think he's gonna make it big soon!

Chords progressions are:  Bm, A & E for the Chorus
          basically and:  Bm, E, D & F#7 for verses



Bm = Barre on 2 or 7

A  = Barre on 5 or open strings on 2

E  = open strings

D  = open strings on chord on x5777x

F7 = chord on x 9 11 9 11 x



Intro - you can also play this using the lower chord positions, but I'm too
