This is the version as played on Trian II

With some chord suggestions

Daithe plays arpeggiated chords throughout so I just made my best effort to find chords that meshed with the recording. For the Em7, a regular Em chord will suffice for DADGAD guitar. Or you could play an open Em chord with the high D string left open. I think it’s nice to get the E in the bass so I would use a barred E chord though and ignore the 7. It’s there to tell you you could optionally use a G major (an Em7 minus the root).
