tuning is 1/2 step down

the last chord D is just standard, so F rather then Gb (1/2 step down ) on the e string... but a good tab

strumming is just down down up(next chord)
its not a fast happy song, you want to keep its mood of the music

Instead of playing the D like it's indicated in this tab, I play the F#/Dsus4 (200233) shape instead. I pluck the strings during the intro and and a bit of the verse, then strum as it builds up. It's more about feeling it rather than following an exact strumming pattern, but I do this:

DDDDU (switch chord) DUDDUDU (switch chord and repeat)

With the bridge I just do downstrokes with some palm muting.

The plucking pattern I use is this one:



e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------3-------------3--------3-----------3------------------------------|
G|---------0-------------0--------0-----------0------------------------------|
D|-----2--------------2--------0----------0----------------------------------|
A|--2---------------3--------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------3----------2-------------------------------------|



Here's a video I filmed with my friend that might give you a better idea of what I'm saying:

We do mess up in a few places though, including the first verse and the bridge, but I hope you get the general idea.

I forgot to note that I tune my guitar half a step down for this song.
