When it comes to gear and tone this song is quite simple, because you really just need an acoustic guitar- preferably with steel strings. You can use a nylon string as well, but it's gonna sound best with steel strings. For a song like this I use a medium pick, because it sounds great for strumming. A thicker pick sounds great for single notes like the intro and a medium sounds great for strumming. Thin picks can be really easy to use, but they also sound kinda thin. So try to be aware of this when you choose a pick for this song.

If you record a song like this it can be a great idea to add a little bit of compression to the acoustic guitar, because it evens out the dynamics and brings out some cool harmonics. You can also add a little bit of reverb, but not too much since this is a very busy part!
