About this tab version
This tab is based off of the studio recorded version (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5le3VGZDVM). Bass riff is played over the verses, but can be played as chords if you're just playing an acoustic guitar. Not much of a strumming pattern as it's mostly just a single downwards strum in the original version, so just do what suits you. Was this info helpful? Yes No
