hello guys welcome back to the channel. This is the second part of the video how to play "Someone you loved" on guitar. In case you want to download the tabs, the link is in the description. Okay, guys in the chorus we're gonna find the same chords we have played in the verse. Cmajor, G major, A minor, F major. And that's the strumming pattern. We can use the last Up stroke to lift all the fingers from the fretboard and get ready to the next chord, this way the transition is gonna be smoother. It is gonna be down down down, lift the fingers, down lift the fingers again, down down.[Music]
when you play up to speed you're not gonna hear the open strings. Have a listen.[Music]
okay, a little variation on this rhythm pattern. Just before the last upstroke, we can add a downstroke and it's gonna sound like that, Down. Okay again, we can use, the last down up to lift the fingers from the fretboard[Music]
okay, the last down-up doesn't need to be on the six strings. I'm actually playing only on the fourth and third string. let's have a listen again.[Music]
just one last thing before to get to the bridge. Between the verse and the chorus instead of playing the F major, we can play a crescendo made of downstrokes. That's why the transition between the verse and the chorus is gonna be smoother and this is how it's going to sounds like. the crescendo.[Music]
okay, now I'm gonna play the chorus with the backing track. The chords in the bridge are D minor, A minor, G major. The strumming pattern is the same we played in the chorus.[Music]
It's just a little different in the transition between G and A minor and the strumming pattern is down down down. Same thing with A minor, down, down, down.[Music]
The whole bridge[Music] [Music]
okay, guys, that's all for this tutorial now I'm gonna play the whole song with a backing track don't forget to Like share and subscribe leave a comment below if you have a specific song in mind that you want me to teach you. See you on my next video.

Welcome to another guitar zero to hero song tutorial. In this lesson, I'll teach you how to play "Someone you loved" by Luis Capaldi. Now in this lesson, I'll teach you how to play a nice fingerpicking pattern that sounds very similar to what the piano is playing in the recorded version but I'll also teach you how to play a really nice and easy strumming pattern for those who just want to strum and sing along now. Now for the basics of this song, you'll need two guitars. Standard tuning and you'll need a capo on the first fret of your guitar the guitar. I'm playing here today is a cold clock fat lady - with Elixir strings, if you want to find out more there's a link in the description below. So before we get into the fingerpicking pattern I'll teach you the chord progression that's basically played throughout the whole song except for the bridge but we'll get to that later. So the chord progressions nice and easy it's just a C and A minor and then an F. You can play your F in two different ways normal bar chord way or the way that I like to play it because there's just easier to get back to the C is with your ring and pinkie finger on the third fret of the 5th and 4th strings middle finger on the 2nd fret of the 3rd string and index finger on the 1st fret of the 2nd string and your thumb will reach over the top and hit the 1st fret of the 6th string so that's the F I like to use so that's our nice and easy chord progression and the fingerpicking pattern is just based around those chords as always for our fingerpicking basics. Your thumb will take care of these 6 5th and 4th strings and your index middle and ring finger will take care of the 3rd 2nd and 1st strings respectively they shouldn't pluck any other strings other than the ones they're assigned to. So let's learn the fingerpicking pattern with the C. We're going to hit the first string and then the third string we're going to alternate between those two strings so let's call hitting the first string of 3rd string one fingerpicking pattern you're going to play that four times for the C but we need to add one thing which is the bass note at the start of the chord. So to add that we're going to be pinching the bass note which is the fifth string in this case at the same time we hit the first string so nothing changes when we're alternating between the first string and third-string we do that four times but we need to add that bass note in at the start and that's going to be similar with all the other chords as well. Now when we go to our G chord the strings that we'll use to alternate between are going to be a little different and also for the G chord we just need to take our ring finger up to the 3rd fret of the 6th string that's all you need to really push down here we're going to be now alternating between the 2nd string and 4th string now getting this for patterns they're 1 2 3 and you also need to add the bass note at the start so you'll pinch the 6th string now and the 2nd string at the same time.[Music]
Now when we go to our A minor chord were again going to be alternating between the second string and fourth string but the bass don't here is the fifth string so say like this[Music]
And then we go to the F chord now we're going to change the strings that we alternate between again so it's going to be the third-string and fifth string that's one thing a picking pattern and our bass note, of course, is the sixth string here so.[Music]
So that's it and in total the main roof will sound like this[Music]
Now there is one variation to the main riff that gets played in a couple of places in the song and it's really really simple it just applies to the F chord for the very last picking pattern so the very last time we alternate between the third string and fifth string you'll just lift your middle finger so you'll hit the open third string and then hit the fifth string so that final F.[Music]
So that's the variation and the variation in total[Music]
Next, we'll move on to the bridge which is really nice and easy there are just two lines of the tab here so we'll start with a D minor shape here now the strings will alternate between will be the first and third strings similar to what we did with the C but the bass note will be the fourth string here so the D minor or cell like this.[Music]
After that, we go to an A minor for one bar and the finger pings the same as what we had in the main riff and we go to a G for one bar and then for the final bar we have a combination of the G and the A minor so just two picking patterns for each chord one two three four and so that's it for that final bar now the second line of the tab is just the first three chords the D minor a minor and G for one full bar each and then that's it for the bridge so the bridge in total so like this.[Music]
That's it for the bridge the only other thing I want to let you know about is the soft chorus so in the soft chorus we're not playing the fingerpicking pattern we're just pinching the cause and letting them ring out for the full bar so you'll do that for one full chord progression the C the G a minor F for the second time you do it the C and the G pinched and held out for one bar but then you come back in with the picking pattern for the A minor and the F so that's it for the fingerpicked version now I'll teach you a really easy strumming pattern that you can use if you want to strum and sing along so the strumming pattern we're gonna use will go something like this down up yeah now as I mentioned at the start of this lesson the main chord progression for this song BC G you'll play a full G here a minor and so you're gonna play each chord for one strumming pattern and all sound like this.[Music]
The only other thing we need to learn for the strummed version is the bridge and we have two lines of chords here we start with the D minor a minor and G those three chords are played for one strumming pattern and then we have G and a minor but those last two chords have their own strumming pattern which goes like this down they're not so there are last two chords down and then the second line of chords is just D minor a minor and G again for one normal strumming pattern so in total the bridge will sound like this.[Music]
So now I'll be playing through both versions the finger-picked one and the strum version and I'm gonna have my good friend Mele lending his awesome vocals on top for some context so feel free to play this back as many times as you'd like to practice play long too and see how you go.[Music]
