Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is my first tab, but I think this is exactly how he plays it. 
I had to learn this song to play in the band at my church, 
and I learned it mostly by ear, and also by looking at the few parts 
where you can see the acoustic guitarist in the music video.
For some reason people seem to think there is an F chord somewhere in here... there isn't.

The timing is kinda tricky, and yes, you do hold the Em7 chord for a seemingly
long time in each verse. It may sound weird at first, but listen really close
and you can tell that it supposed to be like that!

Also, every time you play the G-Em7-Cadd9 progression (like in the intro or 
between verses) the Cadd9 is played for twice as long as the other two chords.
i.e. G(2 beats)-Em7(2 beats)-Cadd9(4 beats)


Good luck and God Bless!
