All you need to play this song is an acoustic guitar. Today I am playing my Taylor 714-CE steel string, with medium gauge strings and Dunlop thumb and finger picks. It’s not essential that you use the finger picks, but they will certainly help to achieve a brighter and punchier sound! I am playing though a Boss GS-10 amp simulator for reverb, EQ and compression and the guitar is tuned in open C# major tuning: C# G# C# G# C# E#
