Geek In The Pink Acoustic
Hello! There's already a couple of other tabs of this song, but this is the way I think he plays it.
It's important to remember to incorporate a lot of muted beats with your hand, which makes it more upbeat.
One good example of how to play it smoothly can be seen in the video below.

Developing a language and I'm callin' it my own
