We changed the key of this one to Ab (using key of G chords with a capo on the first fret) to accommodate a male vocal, and then did our own acoustic take on it.
This is a slow song, and for a lot of the song, you’ll want to make sure you don’t over strum. In the beginning, you may want to just strum once per measure, especially if there are other instruments in your band. Once the song picks up, though, this strumming pattern works well:
1 2 3 4 ,... D D D DUDUD D DU,...
