At last, the tutorial is here!! :) Hope it helps in any way possible, if not comment or inbox me :)

Ok, so this is what I would have sent you and what I've put in the description:

it's pretty simple only 3 or 4 chords
Don't know names so here are notes
1st chord: C#, A
2nd chord: D, F#
3rd chord: A, C#
4th chord: E, G#

It is basically those chords on the right hand throughout just not in that order, not to hard to figure out and the left hand/bass notes are pretty much the same but with only the root note, there's also octaves in there aswell in the 2nd verse :)

Hope it helps, if confused let me know :)

Not too sure how much it's helped you if at all so I'll try and break it down for you :)

I don't know chord names as I learnt by ear so what I've done is given you the notes of chords, there are only two notes in each chord

1st verse (Intro):

So if you take a look at the chords I've given you, you have the first chord which is C#, A (C# being the root note), this is the first chord played, the second chord played is the second chord given above: D, F# (D being root note), it's those two chords back and forth in the first verse, very easy to hear in the song as to when played as he holds the chords for really long.

"Maybe you're love-able" bit:

In this bit you start to get bass notes, but I'll get to that in a minute. There are three chords in this bit, the second chord again starting off this part, then the fourth chord I gave above: E, G# (E root note), then the 3rd chord given A, C#(A root note), then back to the second chord given (D), SO in that bit the chords are played like this: (I'll give you the root notes as names to save confusion)
1st played: D
2nd played: E
3rd played: A
4th played: D

Now the bass notes are the same notes as the root notes in those chords, during this bit you only play the one note as the bass notes (so a singular D, singular E, singular A etc.)

2nd verse: ("Would you ever feel guilty...")

There are again the same three chords in this bit but the order has changed slightly, the new order is:

1st played: A
2nd played: D
3rd played: E

The bass notes are played the same but are now octaves.

Chorus: "maybe I'm just in love..."

Same as "Maybe your love-able" bit with the bass notes as octaves again.

3rd verse:

Same as intro (without bass notes) but also play the 'E' chrd as the third note played.

Chorus (outro):

Same as chorus.

Hope this helps, if still confused message me back and let me know which bits you don't understand

Cameron :)
