Rather Be (Alexa Goddard's Version)

Transcription of Alexa Goddard's acoustic cover of Clean Bandit's "Rather Be".

Some points:

  1. I've only highlighted the notes/chords. Listen to the cover for the comping/strumming patterns.

  2. In the chorus, the comp accents don't fall on the 4/4 beats, and there's no real transition between the D#m7 and EM7 chords.
