USE THIS TUNING:
d
a
F#
D
A
D

THEN PUT CAPO ON 2ND FRET!  its basically a really cool dropped D but since she plays it 
in E, use capo 2!  ****in our cover, we played it in D# so that would be capo 1 but if 
you want to play in original key (E), PLAY CAPO2!!!

this song is completely finger-picked except for the bridge but even for that i just use 
my fingers to strum :P

"let go let go of time for you-uu and I-I..." **this part will be a gradual buildup so make sure you make it sound very full and epic by the end! instead of just using the top four strings, use ALL OF THEM!!!**
