With Or Without You chords
| D | A | Bm | G |
| G | D | Em | C |
You can of course also play the G D Em C chords in the open position, it’ll be in a different key to the original, but it will work fine – you can play along to the second audio, which does sound a bit strange, but it’ll work to give you the structure of the song, and you may find that it’s a better key for your voice.
Different strumming patterns would work for this. The original doesn’t have too much guitar, so there’s not an exact one to copy. A Down, Down, Down, Down Up pattern would work, as would the Pop strumming pattern.
