Orlando plays this with a very light strumming pattern at a very fast speed,
if you strum where the neck and the body of the guitar are connected,
you can get achieve the same sound as Orlando.

Hugo plays this simultaneously when Orlando starts (let the slide ring,
but then play the next section as soon as Sam starts on the drums
with the snare).       | x4

Felix plays this in the chorus', but doesnt start untill Orlndo
sings "i will love you better" the third time and on the word
better (if you listen to the song you can hear when he comes in).

plays in the verses.

Then in the second section of the chorus, Hugo doesnt play the
same bit, when Orlando sings "i will love you better", on the
third time and on the word better (just like Felix), tremelo
picks this (Hugo uses an RV-5 Boss Stomp Box pedal for this).

B|13\8-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
