Can anyone help me with learning this song

Post by Fox88 » September 17th, 2017, 8:09 am

First of sorry if this isn't the right place to post this.

Have mercy - disagree

I'm trying to acoustic cover and sing it but I'm learning it by ear, I'm pretty sure I'm fairly close but might be missing some things so I was hoping to get someone elses take on it as well.

My so far thoughts capo 3rd fret, standard tuning

-2. 3. 5
-0. 2. 0
-0. 0. 4
-0. 0. 0
-0. 0. 0
-0. 0. 0

Then with the add on

-2. 3. 5. 7
-0. 2. 0. 0
-0. 0. 4. 6
-0. 0. 0. 0
-0. 0. 0. 0
-0. 0. 0. 0


Chrous

-4. 2. Not sure the rest of chrous
-4. 2
-4. 2
-4. 2
-4. 2
-4. 2


I think the best part is a d cord snap on 3rd fret d string with the pinky down then remove the move middle up and remove ring as well then repeat but I pretty sure that isn't correct =/ I'm gonna keep working but any help would be great

Thank you anyone that looks

I'm afraid I'm unfamiliar with this notation. Try Ultimate-guitar and just take it slow.

Feel free to reach out if you have any other questions. I know that wasn't SUPER helpful, but I promise it's a great place to start.

I couldn't see it on Ultimate Guitar

OK - so these are your left-hand shapes; the numbers are fret numbers above the Capo, right?

Looking at it on YouTube it looks like you've got your string order wrong - the top line of your "shapes" appears to be the bottom string

Playing along with it - no capo, standard tuning - I reckon it's in B - that chorus is definitely B, F# and E (G#, D# and C# above a 3rd fret capo although I reckon the capo is there to provide a base for the odd harmonies and a non-standard tuning)
