Today I'm gonna show you how to play "Someone you loved" by Lewis Capaldi. This song it's been originally recorded on the piano but I made a very easy arrangement for guitar.

Grab your guitar and let's get started. As you can see there's a capo on the first fret so everything I'm going to say regarding the position of a chord on a fretboard is gonna be in relation to the capo on the first fret okay. In the intro you have four chords; C major (A shape), G major (E shape), A minor (E minor shape), F major (E major shape). From C major we're gonna play only two nodes. The one on the second string and the one on the fifth string we're gonna play those two notes four times three because we are playing only two notes. We can only place two fingers, the little finger goes on the second string fifth fret and the first finger goes on the fifth string third fret, then we have G major and we're gonna play only the third string and the sixth and we can use the ring finger and the first finger the ring finger on the third string and the first finger on the sixth string then we have A minor. We're gonna play again only the third string and the sixth and we use the ring finger and the second finger then we have F major and we're gonna play again the third and the sixth string. We can use the third finger and the first finger third finger on the third string and the first finger on the sixth string we're gonna repeat those notes three times and then we're gonna play the third open string one two three open string now I'm gonna play the whole thing 2 3 4. 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 open string. Let's focus now on the right hand you can use the hybrid picking technique as I did up until now which is middle finger and down stroke with a pick or you can use only the pick upstroke on the high note and downstroke on the low note.[Music]
same thing here down down up down up down again.[Music]
down up down up down up down up down up down.
In the verse we have the same chords as the intro only a different shape. We have C major, G major, A minor and F major. Okay! Let's focus on the right hand. With a third and four fingers, we're going to play the double stop on the third and fourth string while with the pick we are playing downstroke on the bass on C major again the double stop on the third and fourth string and downstroke on the fifth string. On G major same thing double stop on the third and fourth string and with the pick we're playing the sixth string. Same thing on A minor doubles up on the third and fourth string and we are picking down the fifth string and on f-major same thing double stop on the third and fourth string and we pick down the sixth string. Okay. Let's play the whole thing.[Music]
Okay. Because in G major we are playing only G on the sixth string and everything else is an open string we can only place one finger for that chord.[Music]
Okay now I'm gonna play the verse with the backing track this way you're gonna have a listen to the way the whole thing is gonna sounds like.
