If you tuned you guitar up to F Bb F Bb D F the low E and A could handle being tuned up 1 semitone
but the D G and B string would be under a lot of tension being tuned up 3 semitone and it's probably
not that good for the neck of you guitar either. Better safe than sorry.

Thanks for the video Justin, it is very helpful. Does someone have any advice on how to practice that light strumming right before the 4th beat of the first bar of the intro? I find it very hard to do it AND to get my right hand ready for the picking that comes right after.   ??? Any advice would be welcome...

Use your index finger to strum. This way, your hand is already in or close to the position it needs to get into. ;)

@RicardoPRS - the reason is not to put too much strain on the neck.

@Oliv - it's just practice, do it slow, get it right and then gradually speed it up!

I hope it's ok to resurrect an old topic.

In the intro, the last note of the first bar and the first note of the second bar are played by the same finger.
Does anyone have an alternative fingering that works for either of those notes? Cheers.

In the songook the lyrics for verse 5 are missing. I guess you had to lose them to fit this on the two pages. I was confused for a moment when I was listening to the song and looking at the book at the same time.

btw. should beginners try to apply some simple fingerstyle pattern to this or should I stick to just strumming? I really have started to like fingerstyle playing during the 1 year that I've been practicing guitar.
