Right Handed Charts:
Left Handed Charts:
- Level Of Ease: Moderate with a capo - you will need to know some barre chords. (B♭ and maybe F depending on your preference).
- Song Key: F# major (6 sharps - F#, C#, G#, D#, A#, E# )
- Song Key with capo: F major (1 flat - Bb)
- 6/8 Time: 6 eighth-note/quaver beats per bar, therefore the count is | 1 2 3 4 5 6 |, etc.
- Tempo: approx. 160 bpm with various fluctuations throughout the song.
- We have placed a capo on the first fret and play in the key of F Major ( Audibly, it will still sound in the key of F#)
- This song uses sus2 chords which work very well. A suspended 2nd chord is simply a chord which playes a major 2nd instead of a major 3rd in the chord, therefore the chord formula is 1 - 2 - 5... the tonic followed by a major 2nd followed by a perfect 5th, e.g., Dsus2 is made up of D E A while, Csus2 is made up of C - D - G, and Bbsus2 is made up of B♭ - C - F.
- Wherever you see a hyphen between 2 chords in a bar means the timing count in that bar is halved for each chord, e.g., | F - B♭ | means 3 beats on F and 3 beats on Bb. Remember the timing is 6 beats per bar.
- Visit the guitar chords page for help with any chords.
- I have used a live version, as the official video has too many distractions like waves crashing and quite a long gap without music towards the end. It may become annoying if you are playing along with the song.
- Great song - talented artist... official video
