-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard

Orlando plays this with a very light strumming pattern at a very fast speed,
if you strum where the neck and the body of the guitar are connected,
you can get achieve the same sound as Orlando.

A|1717171717171717-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|1515151515151515-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Hugo plays this simultaneously when Orlando starts (let the slide ring,
but then play the next section as soon as Sam starts on the drums
with the snare).       | x4

Hugo then stops playing his previous part and plays this when
everyone comes in.

Felix plays this in the chorus', but doesnt start untill Orlando
sings "i will love you better" the third time and on the word

plays in the verses.

Then in the second section of the chorus, Hugo doesnt play the
same bit, when Orlando sings "i will love you better", on the
third time and on the word better (just like Felix), tremelo
picks this (Hugo uses an RV-5 Boss Stomp Box pedal to get the
long sustained reverb/Hall reverb).

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
