Welcome to Meghan Trainor feat. John Legend’s Like I’m Gonna Lose You Guitar Tutorial! This is a great love song that’s really fun to play and sounds great. The song sounds a lot harder than it actually is. There is essentially one chord progression that is played throughout the whole song. What makes it sound hard is all the little variations in the picking patterns. In this video i’ll teach you 3 different ways of playing the song.

  1. Studio version Capo on 5th fret. – I’ll show you 4 picking pattern variations you can play – mix and match as you please.
  2. No capo picking version – An alternative picking variation without the need for a capo.
  3. Easy strummed version – A basic strummed version for the beginners out there.

At the end of the video i’ll be playing through the song with a vocal backing track for some context. Play along and see how you go. 🙂 Enjoy! Like this #likeimgonnaloseyou video by #meghantrainor and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!

[Verse]

C
I found myself dreaming
Em
In silver and gold
Am
Like a scene from a movie
     F      C/E    Dm    G
That every broken heart knows

C
We were walking on moonlight
Em
And you pulled me close
Am
Split second and you disappeared
         F     C/E Dm    G
And then I was all alone


[Pre-Chorus]

C
I woke up in tears with you by my side
Em
Breath of relief
            Am
And I realized
              F    C/E    Dm    G
No, we're not promised tomorrow


[Chorus]

            C                        Em
So I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you
          Am                         F
I'm gonna hold you like I'm saying goodbye
                C
Wherever we're standing
                    Em
I won't take you for granted
                   Am                              F
'Cause we'll never know when, when we'll run out of time

             C                       Em
So I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you
             Am                      F
So I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lo-se you


[Verse]

C
In the blink of an eye
Em
Just a whisper of smoke
Am
You could lose everything
F     C/E    Dm    G
The truth is you never know

C
So I'll kiss you longer baby
Em
Any chance that I get
Am
And I'll make the most of the minutes
F     C/E    Dm    G
And love with no regrets


[Pre-Chorus]

C
Let's take our time to say what we want
Em                                  Am
Use what we got before it's all gone
                     F    C/E  Dm    G
'Cause no, we're not promised tomorrow


[Chorus]

            C                        Em
So I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you
          Am                         F
I'm gonna hold you like I'm saying goodbye
                C
Wherever we're standing
                    Em
I won't take you for granted
                   Am                              F
'Cause we'll never know when, when we'll run out of time

             C                       Em
So I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you
             Am                      F
So I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lo-se you


[Instrumental]

C Em Am F


[Chorus]

      C                        Em
So I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you
          Am                         F
I'm gonna hold you like I'm saying goodbye
                C
Wherever we're standing
                    Em
I won't take you for granted
                   Am                              F
'Cause we'll never know when, when we'll run out of time

             C                       Em
So I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you
             Am                      F
So I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lo-se you
