The acoustic continues the single strums using the open chords in the verse sections. These are single strums right on either the 1st or 3rd beat of every bar. The dynamic of the verses is low, so a light touch is required here.

The 2nd verse adds a bit of drama to the chord progression by holding every 2nd D chord out for 2 bars, so watch out for that!
