|--------------------------------|--------------------------------| |0-------------------------------|--------------------------------| |--------------------------------|--------------------------------| Post chorus: (this is just like the verse except the first time he plays an F instead of Dm) | | | | | | | |

|4-----------------4-------------|4-----------------4-------------| |--------------------------------|--------------------------------| |--------------------------------|--------------------------------| |----------3---------------3-----|----------3---------------------| etc., into the verse I like to start strumming these chords in the outro. Instead of --2-- Use --0-- --3-- --3-- --2-- --0-- --0-- --4-- ---- --5-- ---- ----- For guitar 2 strum the same chords voiced mostly openly with capo on 1st fret. Relative to capo: verse: C#m - A - E - Esus2 (or add 9, mess with it) chorus: A - E - Esus2; A- E- Esus2- B post chorus: E - A- E - Esus2; C#m - A- E - Esus2
