The Rocket Summer - Good News



I'm sure this isn't 100% accurate, but I think it's pretty close to how he plays it.

Listen to the track to get the timings/strummings. Fingerpicked except for the 
pre-chorus and parts of the chorus.



Standard Tuning



Intro/Verse - fingerpicked, allow the notes a long decay in the first section

Chorus - First time through I fingerpick the notes kinda staccato-ish, listen to the 
record to see what I mean, second section strum for emphasis.
         
         Not 100% sure on that slur part in the fingerpicking section, but it sounds close.


       he starts strumming on that weird C into G         strum this whole section

Ending Lick - You can play that hammer on G as a slide on D from 5 to 7, and it kinda 
sounds like a slide on the record.
              I'm lazy and prefer the hammer so my hands are already in position for the 
final D chord.

That's it!
