C Am F G

Lovely lovely song. Featured in the documentary: "Hot Girls Wanted"

Basically the key riff repeats throughout the song

For the chords, things I've written in brackets you can kinda take a pass when playing.

In the riff its a kind of connecting chord that only goes for 1 beat, so not playing it

if you're just strumming is acceptable.

Though if you learn the timing it's definitely good to include when playing!
