Islands  Young the Giant
That's my cover of this amazing song by Young the Giant and these are the exact chords I
used. I tried to keep that same open the session feeling it had.
I know that in my cover, the strumming rhythm I use for the last half of the song is
different than the rhythm in the orignial version but that's because in one part, I could
play that rhythm and sing at the same aaaand it's also easier that way xD. Well I hope
this helps anyone! :)
