Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Capo: 6

This version is a bit more complex than the others on here, but it's also more true to the actual song.
Some of the lesser known chords I put here. Pay attention to the fingering of some of these, as they aren't
normal. You can play them normally but it won't sound as good:

G/F#: 200003
G/D: xx000x
D: x54030
C/E: 032010
C/B: x2001x
Am7: x0201x

There are also quite a few hammer-on's throughout the song that are hard to tab.
You'll just have to listen along with the song to get those.
