Some chord shapes maybe new to you here but once under your fingers, will provide new options when sophistication is needed. In bar 8, beat 3 hold the (implied) Em7 barre chord down when doing the ‘flutter’ notes so they ring into each other. Picking directives come from typical strumming approaches with a few ‘rule breakers’ due to accenting offbeats (bar 3’s F#m7 could have been an up stroke). Explore them all before changing to other approaches.
