Summary: Delicate

For this track, which doesn't have a prominent guitar part, we are taking the main piano/synth part and converting them to acoustic guitar. This will allow you to play and sing along with the track so that you can accompany yourself when playing the song.

The Main Chords: Powerchords

For this track we can use 4 chords, playing one bar each chord. The chords are shown below and will go in this sequence:

C5 /// D5 /// A5 /// F5 ///

The Groove: Palm Muting dwonstrokes

You also highlight the "1" and the "2 and" in your counting to bring the groove to life. Here is the rhythm pattern:

The bridge: Chords

The bridge section is a little different and utilises some new powerchords, like this:

E5 /// A5 /// G5 /// //// (x2)
