The verse section relies on common chord shapes as well as piano chord voicings to strum the tune campfire style. Use some steady 8th note strumming, keeping things even and relaxed, at a lower dynamic to put the focus on the vocal.

The first half of the progression stays on an F#m chord in 2nd position (full barre chord shape). Note the transition to the F#m/E that leads us down to the D chord. Then you are moving triads back and forth similar to the intro, ending on an open A chord.
