He's Not a Boy The Like
Capo on the 4th fret.
The intro is strummed down, down, down up up. On the first up stroke, add the suspended
to the E chord. On the second up stroke, remove it. Play this three times, then a final
E chord on a down stroke to end the intro.
The chorus is strummed the same way. When you move the E up to the sixth fret, mute the
string with the pinky you'll fret it with when you're not playing it.

These chords are written in the same way. Each is strummed 8 times (besides the last).

You can probably take it from there. If you don't think I got all of the chords right,
can watch a great video of The Like performing an acoustic version of this song on the
Stone's youtube channel, which is where I got them from. I'm not positive I got them
though, so you may have to play around with them.
