I am new to the guitar. I have however learned to fingerpick basic songs!

This is a Hawaiian song I am obsessed with learning!

Although I found this tab

However the tab is slightly of which has been bugging me so much! I can't fix it. It is only of by a few notes but I can't fix it.

I am begging someone to look at it. Its super easy and short but I am not quite there with translating notes yet unfortunately. I have tried everything so please let me know if you can help.

Merry christmas and Happy holidays everyone!

Basically he is just picking at the chords I have.... I am sorry as I really don't know how to explain fingerpicking or strum patterns, etc. to someone.... Basically I just do it ...I guess I have my own style when it comes to that as I was and still am self taught.... I just figured a way that works for me... The way I learned was to just put on the song and tried to keep up with it... Eventually it just came to me... I know that isn't the greatest advice but it is the best I can give... The only other thing I can let you know is that this song sounds good basically just strumming the chords slowly from the low e string to the high e string... Just once on each chord... His voice is the true instrument here... The guitar is just background noise....

Also, just try imitating what you see and don't be afraid to experiment with moving your picking fingers ... That is what I did...also, if you really want to their are videos out on you tube that demonstrate different types of picking styles... I watched them when they first came out a long long long long time ago but to me I was always more comfortable doing it my way... To me that is always the best... Do it the way that feels the most comfortable to you... Same as playing a song... Play it the way you feel it and as long as you please yourself playing that is all that really matters
