How to finger the chorus:

The Ba-line tells you which finger to finger the bass (lower) note with, and the
Hi-line tells you which finger to finger the other (higher) note with. It looks more confusing than it is.

1 = Index finger
2 = Middle finger
3 = Ring finger
4 = Pinky finger

You can keep your index finger on the 1st fret of the G-string for this entire part,
except for the first four notes/chords (“I’m going to Grace-”).
