BEGINNER TIPS:

If you’re not comfortable with playing Bm, you can play Em instead. It won’t sound absolutely right but it’ll sound ok enough for you to play through. This song can be abit challenging in terms of knowing when the chord changes happen so watch the tutorial and practice slowly until you get the hang of the timing between chord changes.
