Happy Easter, you guys.

Or, more accurately, ‘chord’. It’s D6 all the way through. Which is all the strings open in D-tuning (which seems to be his tuning of choice) or this in C-tuning.

d d u d d u d u
The easier way of doing it is with all down strums but emphasizing certain strums like this:
D d d D d d D d
