Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is spot on, trust me I have perfect pitch. The first version is entirely wrong. This is for those who 
want the intro and interludes with chords for the lyrics. Obviously there are sequential notes being played
during the verses, and honestly I'm too lazy to do those right now. Generally though, those notes can be 
improvised by hitting strings one at a time while playing with the chord fingering. Enjoy!

First chord of the second line in the verse is Fm I would say... I also play it as Dmb5 sometimes. That sounds a little edgier. Everything else is perfect
