Alright so first. 4/4 timing throughout, don't want to get too fancy anyways.  This song starts off with a guitar playing the G Mixolydian mode, at about 15 seconds, it changes to the G Locrian mode.  Feel free to improvise with the picking however I tend to use bends and hammer ons.  An accompanying piano will also be playing in G for rhythm.

The verse features a piano segment that's overlapped with a very similar guitar finger pick pattern.

Chord progression is as follows:

C G D Em C Am repeat through verse once per line.

Chorus  C D G Em Am F# C (Each chord repeat pattern twice except for the F# and the second C)

Bridge:  Key changes to C.  Single strum C than return to strumming pattern A, Dm, Em, F x3
So this is what I've worked out so far. I've left the actual strumming pattern and exact picking to improvisation. Sorry if none of you have music experience. I'm pretty sure this would be impossible to understand without music experience and even then a lot of it is unspecific and probably even wrong. Beyond that, I'm still working on the lyrics. That's kind of my Achilles heel in song writing. So yeah. Incomplete by a large margin.

I have no idea what you just said but I'll favorite anyway. :P
Did I mention, I'm still learning a lot of this myself. :D Heh, had originally written it for G Mixolydian/Aeolian which unless I'm mistaken (could easily be) can be translated as a minor key and was going to use that and changed my mind but forgot I changed my mind...I'm very forgetful.
And just like that I realized I was making a scale in G minor but posting chords in G major :D
No wait...I got it mixed up. I was using the G major scale. false alarm. XP
