Within Temptation - Ice Queen [Acoustic]

So, before I delve into power chords, I wanted to record one last acoustic song, and decided to go with a simplified Within Temptation’s “Ice Queen” (which is about winter). Decided to use different strumming patterns for verses, bridge and choruses. Verses have D-DUDU, bridges strumming are following my voice lines (in other words, the strumming follows syllables), so it varies (but it usually is DDD-DD), and choruses uses D-DUDU-DU (or D-UDU-D when needed) strumming pattern.

Chords used: Am F Dm C G
