I think this sounds best alternatively strumming the C and A strings while changes finger positions to the ones listed here, then transitioning to a strum and then picking starting at 'My father wasn't around'... if that makes any sense to anyone.

It sounds nice if you end it on F G then C.

For anyone looking for the strumming pattern, I use DDUD

I'd remove the G (except for the part where both Hamilton and Burr sings) but otherwise, it's amazing! thanks!

if you pluck the C G and A strings and then the G string it sounds a lot like the original.

this is very mislabeled and im not happy about it, its listed as a tab but this is not a tab this is a chord

@transthot the strumming pattern can just be down down or you can do a four shring pluck to make it sound like the piano
