Make sure you put special emphasis on the bass-played with your thumb. There are no barred chords which makes this song fairly easy to play. Play at moderate speed. Try “accenting” the bass note. This means playing all the thumb notes a little harder or louder than the rest. Ideally you would want to keep the bass lingering throughout the entire song.
