This is my own arrangement, a combination of strumming and finger-picking. I play a lot of solo gigs and playing the exact arrangement from the recording is sometimes not full enough for one guitar, also they usually overdub several guitars, so my arrangements attempt to combine all the important elements so the song rings familiar. I also try to incorporate chords that work well with the melody line and add some color and my personal style. Here’s my rendition of Ryan Cabrera’s “True”, something I first worked up in 2004.
Ryan Cabrera/True tuned down 1/2 step so you can play it in G TRUE

Don’t try to sing early in the morning :/
But you can see the fingering, anyway.
