Welcome to Shawn Mendes feat. Camila Cabello’s I Know What You Did Last Summer Guitar Tutorial! This has been requested quite a bit so here it finally is! It’s quite a simple song structure wise, however the tempo is fast! So beginners beware you’ll need to train up your strumming hand to keep up. The most difficult part of the song is the Chorus strumming pattern, the chords themselves are easy but knowing when or when not to mute the strings is critical to getting the authentic sound of the song. #iknowwhatyoudidlastsummer may test some of you with it’s strumming but practice it at slow speed and work your way up the #shawnmendes status!

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 the #iknowwhatyoudidlastsummer video by #shawnmendes & #camilacabello and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!
