    -2 is pretty easy. Idk about the others

  2. fluent_gay

    +1, +3, and -4 seem easy just by glancing at the chords

  3. omg! omg! omg! omg!
    YASSSSS!
    I’ve been waiting for this.
    (-5)

  4. YeemoTrash

    Oh my god yes!!!!!

  5. FrancesIvy

    wasn’t the whole premise of secret for the mad that it was clean and simple and just had dodies voice. so surely for this you should just pluck C?

  6. gooberoo

    -4 is my personal favourite and sounds really cute if you pluck the two last strings to the rhythm of the song throughout the whole thing

  7. You will get through everything, and life will suit you better soon <3

  8. MeredythC

    -4!!

  9. DWUkelover

    It sounds really good if you strum each chord once and play the bottom string with the same rhythm that Dodie plays the piano in the video.

  10. BcawJoseph

    I’m crying my dudes

  11. D-D-U D-D-U is a good strumming pattern
