I am Leo Eymard And today I will teach you the song "Thinking out Loud" from Ed Sheeran To make this lesson I used as a reference an acoustic version of the song sang by Ed Sheeran using only an acoustic guitar Because for us to play it its better since it fits so nicely in voice and guitar only And because in the studio version there is electric guitar and other instruments as well One more detail I will teach it in the same tune as it is in the acoustic version Therefore, it will be 1 tone under te original studio version Before showing you the chords, let's take a look at the tuning The E (6th) string will be D The A (5th) string at G The D (4th) string at C The G (3rd) string at F The B (2nd) string at A And the E (1st) string will be D, again After lowering one tone in each string, we are ready to play the song one thing those who want to play with the studio version, the one from the videoclip and such just learn it the way I will teach here, then tune back your guitar to the standard tuning Ok? To play the 1st part, we are using the following chords D major, which can be played without pressing the first string since we are not using it. Like this. Next D/G# G major Can be done using only finger 2 and A major with finger 1 Remember, those are only "shapes" from the chords since the guitar is not tuned in standard Let's go then, first part will be like this I'm gonna play the fingering once then I show the details Well, we are going to use the right hand thumb to hit the E, A, and D strings and for the chord's trembles: the index and middle fingers 1st chord, D major, like this Notice that at the beginning the index finger is released Then I play the 3 strings at the same time then hammer it in the 3rd string to form D major hit it and then hammer on without playing again with the right hand then punch Indicated by the "x" in the tabs then we play the D/F# like this No mystery. The detail is in the tabs it requires us to play 3 strings but because we only use the index and the middle fingers, we just pull them up. Look. Afterwards, there is G major. Played just once. A hit. A punch. To finish off, in the A major, we start by playing with three fingers at the same time then thumb, and one stroke To perform this 'stoke' we whip down using index and middle fingers. Like this. Attention to this Hammer On that we play using the 3rd finger at the 4th fret, on G string. I also put these "X" in the tabs because we use the movement from the Hammer On to stroke the bass strings using the Thumb Notice To finish off, there is one more hit on the A sting. Alright. After practicing each chord separately we add them all together to form this fingering pattern which will be repeated the whole Part One I am playing it twice here but in the song it is played several times. Check it out pre-chorus chords The pattern here is similar to the one I just taught. Look. I am playing the whole fingering here, then I will show you part by part To keep things organized, I will divide it in 4 parts The first one is like this Here we keep the same idea from Part 1 Thumb hits bass strings and we use these two fingers to hit the chord's trembles At E minor from the beginning, we play like this Well, here we just have to pay attention to the last but one hit that's where we hit down the strings like this thus, you will practice the E minor like this At A7, we play just one time and then give it a little stroke and at the last chord, the D major, we play like this Begin playing normally then a little stroke downwards and a note at D string to close. The 2nd part is equivalent to the 1st one. The difference is that we keep pressing the A7 at the end, instead of switching to D. Look. Now part 3, also very similar. This part is just like the 1st one, the difference is that instead of D major, we play B minor. Check it out. Lastly, part 4. Here we begin playing just like the other parts, at E minor, nothing changes. Look. To finish off, we play down 5 times on A7. Done. Now you practice each part separately, then add them all up to play the pre-Chorus. At the Chorus, we go back to the fingering of Part 1 in the same sequence, repeating. with just one novelty at the very end. I am gonna play the Chorus once, then I'll show you what's different. Well, as I told you, at the Chorus we will repeat the pattern used to play the 1st part of the song By the way, it is what we play virtually all the time Here at the Chorus it is played 4 times. I'll show you once, but while playing, notice that it repeats... After playing this sequence 4 times, we'll play the last part like this Well, also, no mystery here. We play one time each chord, but this time We'll use the index, middle and ring fingers to play the chords' trembles. which are these 3 strings here. Look. Only at D major we use back the pattern idea from the pre-Chorus strike, bass, little stroke, and one more hit on D string After the Chorus, we have nothing to learn anymore. You already know everything you need to play the song. Second Part is like Part 1, only with different lyrics. likewise at pre-Chorus 2. Just pay attention at the ending, where we repeat the last part of the Chorus. the little 'fading', using one-hit chords from Bm to D major. Remember? I am gonna play the last Chorus for us to practice together and to play the whole song, go back to the begging of this lesson and play along with me. Alright? Let's go then.
