This is a beautiful acoustic version.  
It's pretty novice (you'll need to practice your barre Bb, but the rest is in open chords 
(if you're new to guitar, don't be afraid of the sharps and flats!)  
For intermediate players, if you'd like to jazz it up, 
it's possible to substitute F with Fmaj7 and D with Dmin7.  
The length of intro, instrumental and coda is up to you.  
This song was Hall and Oates longest-staying number 1 hit around the world. Enjoy!
