The tune kicks in with a descending chord progression. There are 2 distinct parts to the progression: A, E/G#, F#m, B; then A, E/G#, B, E. In the intro, re-intros, and outro, each part is played one time each. In the chorus, the first part is played three times, and the second part is played once.

The approach here is to use relaxed and steady strumming, with a slight accent on the backbeat (the 2nd and 4th beat of each measure).

The use of the capo is a common approach in country music, and in this case we are putting the capo on the 2nd fret. This provides a nice blend of different chord voicings between the acoustic and electric guitars, which do not use a capo.
