There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ

variations of the song going around so I want to make sure that I don’t cause any confusion.

G – 3x0033
Em – 033003

The difference is that I’m using the more common voicings for the open chords – I just
it sounds better this way.

My chords

Cadd9 – x32030
G – 320033
Em - 022000

If you could check out my cover I’d greatly appreciate it. But enough explanation,
the song itself.
