An intimate arrangement that combines fingerpicking and strumming to create a beautiful backdrop for the vocals. This song is a great “step-up” for the beginner player. The verses are played with a fingerstyle pattern using a four finger approach, while the chorus and bridge is strummed using multiple patterns.
The lesson video breaks down the fingerpicking and strum patterns. I (Andrew) choose to notate an accurate version of what Emmy played in the performance for the tab/notation. So, you will notice that some of the strum patterns are different than what was taught. This is a common occurrence with music, in which artists will throw slight variations into their performances. Think of the lesson video as teaching you a “base” strum pattern, but feel free to throw in your own variations or twists on any pattern when performing.
