Notes to playing it JUST like Blind Pilot:
1) He does this little pinky thing with his F chord. First he'll emphasize the open E
the F7, then he'll emphasise the D on the F11, then back to the E string on the F7, and
 he'll do a sort of melodic fall from the F9-F7-F11-F7. (emphasize the notes, G-E-D-C). 

In fact, in that video he breaks his A string (on purpose!) to avoid hitting that nasty
(which I included for the C chords)
2) When strumming verse, he does a weird pull of thing with the 2nd fret on the G
but it's VERY brief, don't over do it! The idea is a F7-F*-F7- real quick.
3) When strumming the bridge (Amin chord), he uses pull offs on the 2nd fret of the D
G strings. He also plays the f7 chord for only 1 strum!
4) He changes the strumming pattern towards the end (on the chorus section) to
a melody involving the D on the B string (3rd fret). I'm too lazy to tab it out,
use your ear. Check out the video, it'll help loads!
