The verse chord progression is as beautiful as it is interesting. We start out in the key of E major with an open E chord, then the III minor and II minor chords (G# minor and F# minor). We move back to the G#, but this time it's a dominant 7 chord, setting up a modulation.

Next play a C# minor, E/B, then F# minor leading back to the open E, and finally B7. Try to keep your strums even and relaxed, keeping the dynamic lower for the verses.
