    This song is amazing, and I couldn't seem to find the correct version of it. Other versions have right
    chords but are in the wrong key! There's two parts to this song - the piano and the guitar.
    I've kind of merged the two together so it sounds right when all played on a single guitar.
    The original key of this song is Fm, so I've said to slap a capo on one to make it easier.
    It sounds much better and true to the original if you only play the lowest few strings, though you
    can change the sound if you like! Where it says something like G-Em, it means to play Em RIGHT after
    you play the G. It sounds better if you slide down the barre chords.
    Edit - Either play capo on one or capo on six. Capo on one is the Hannah Kirby version and six is the original methinks.
