We will be using standard tuning.
There are basically 3 separate chord progressions that use mostly open position chords.
Throughout a lot of the verse you will need to keep your little finger on the 3rd fret of the high E string while you transition from a C major to A minor chord underneath it. This is probably going to be one of the trickiest parts of the song to play since it requires a bit of a stretch between your 3rd and 4th finger.
If that chord change is too difficult, a simple C major to A minor chord change is fine, in fact, that is what Dave Grohl does live most of the time.
I will take you through each chord progression in the order that it appears in the song and will also show you a simple strumming pattern you can use.
I hope you enjoy learning this one!
