Chords used in this song
In the beginning the acoustic guitar is prominent, and you’ll want to play just down-strums on 8th notes. The pattern would look like this:
1 2 3 4 ,... d d d d d d d d ,...
To get the sound you hear on the album you’ll need to use a technique called palm muting. You use the flesh of your palm on your strumming hand to mute the strings as you strum so the strings don’t ring out. Palm muting can be tricky, and as you become better at it, you’ll find that you can very the amount of sustain that you allow the strings to have.
During the bigger sounding sections of the song, you can use this pattern:
1 2 3 4 ,... d udud udud du,...
1 2 3 4 ,... d d d dud d d du,...
