On the verse. We have the following cords. F c slash e d minor seven d minor seven slash c b flat major seven. He's less g sharp g minor ceases. Notice that almost every chord I mentioned before is made with bar chord, meaning You gotta play by using one finger to press down multiple strings across a single fret off the fingerboard. I'll give you some examples. C slash e The minor seventh d minor sevenths. Let's see if g minor and she says on their refrain, We're going to use B Flat and C says and Leslie on bridge. We have Jim minor B flat. It's he says, Great Now, once you memorize the courts, you can go to the next video 3. INTRO: now we're gonna do the intro. The first time to do it is by playing the four stream on the 10th. Fret is lying it onto the 12th fret and after dead, played 1/3 stream onto the 12 fret. Then go back to the death threat like this. So do the same thing on this seventh fret and then on the fifth. Have this, then go ahead. All seventh fret and death. See that they're 80 steps to do what? 46 seven. Okay, Notice that I always played 1/4 stream. He's lighting it on till the next wave, and I always conclude playing their stream. 4. VERSE: wait for the first. We're gonna use eight cords. You're gonna do this phrase four times, so we're gonna use F who sees last E de Miner de miners last C B flat, major seven. He's less g sharp. G minor. I see. So that means suspended. - Now , let's do the reading. You're gonna use f these. You have to breathe down another one. So on and this rhythm use for each card, - let's do the rhythm and the courts to get 5. REFRAIN: we owe refrain is really easy. There are only two chords B flat. They're going to repeat it four times now. The reason for their friend If now let's do the refrained together. 6. BRIDGE: Wayne Bridge. We're gonna use three different courts, G minor. Cease. And we were gonna use G minor in, see Zeus four times there, b flat and sees us four times way . And now they're going to use the same reason as they're referring down, down, down for each court way. 7. FINAL PART: The final part is almost the same as the interest, but you need to add the same notes and look terrible like this way. So you have second streak on the 10th. Fret is lighting until the 13 friend on, then bladed first stream on the 13 fret Go back, the 10 friends a friend 13 15 13. And there, Theo Complete final part is the syndrome, plus that work that I did before, Theo. 8. LET'S PLAY TOGETHER: so after Brock to see each part of the song, You may try playing it from the beginning to the end ever song as I structure, meaning a musical form which is a part of the song writing process. The better together structure is made by Indra Verse Refrain verse refrain Bridge in the final section.
