About this tab version
Fingerstyle of just the chorus. Was this info helpful? Yes No
note: i use super skinny electric guitar strings(on my acoustic)yes electric strings 
8's usually smaller if i can find them, they give a really good sound contrast between 
lively base and sweet melodic treble, however this means my vibrato is very easy and i can do it everywhere
if its too difficult, its not necessary, added song words so you know where you are and how it should sound

*******************
picking harmonics are NEEDED

they are everywhere in this tab
and if you don't know how to do them, don't worry there's a video down there
they can be tricky at first but get very easy after a little while
very useful as a skill if you want to learn about more advanced methods of fingerstyle :)
but once you have them down it's so easy and the song isn't fast so this is a great 
song to learn them from.

if you're not sure here's a video...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkp6fraDjBQ

from about 2 minutes in he demonstrates it (doing harmonics with just his strumming hand)
if you watch the full video he talks alot about harmonics and the different kinds
