Tuning: Standard

It's pretty straight forward, listen to the song for timing. 
Some playing tips: you can use your ring and middle finger to play the low 
notes and hit the B string with your pinky and index like hammer ons in the
strum pattern. 
Also, as a general rule, either mute the e strings or don't hit them at all.
Cope generally uses the middle section of the guitar.

                     *             $ *
* For strumming tips, at the end of the second phrase and 4th phrase, strum 
a whole bunch of times.
$ This is a quick transition, but you should hear the open note in between.

The chorus is played with distortion, and it is pretty much just the A and D
strings struck down in about 1/4 notes. 

That's about it. You just play this over
