Welcome to Throwback Thursday’s where I teach you a classic hit from the last 4-5 decades! This week I’ll be covering a Just The Way You Are Guitar Tutorial from pop and R’n’B legend Bruno Mars! This is such a grooving song which is incredibly easy to play so it’ll be great for beginners. You only need to know 3 chord shapes and there’s no barre chords involved!

In the video I’ll also teach you an easy finger picking pattern you can use if you want to make the song more intimate. Otherwise I show you a fairly basic strumming pattern for #justthewayyouare. At the end of the video i’ll be playing through the entirety of the song with a vocal track on top for you to play along to.

Enjoy! Like this #justthewayyouare video by #brunomars and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!

[Intro]

 D         Bm7
 Ah, ah ah ah 
       G            D
 Ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah


[Verse]

   D
 Oh her eyes, her eyes, make the stars look like they're not shining
Bm7
 Her hair, her hair, falls perfectly without her trying
G                                        D
 She's so beautiful, and I tell her every day

     D
Yeah, I know, I know when I compliment her she won't believe me
Bm7
 And it's so, it's so sad to think that she don't see what I see
G                                             D
 But every time she asks me do I look okay, I say


[Chorus]

                D                   Bm7
When I see your face, there's not a thing that I would change
              G                        D
Cause you're amazing, just the way you are
             D                      Bm7
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for awhile
                   G                        D
Cause girl you're amazing, just the way you are, (yeah)


[Verse]

D
 Her lips, her lips, I could kiss them all day if she'd let me
Bm7
 Her laugh, her laugh, she hates but I think it's so sexy
G                                         D
 She's so beautiful, and I tell her every day

        D
Oh, you know, you know, you know I'd never ask you to change
   Bm7
If perfect is what you're searching for, then just stay the same
G                                                            D
So, don't even bother asking if you look okay, you know I'll say


[Chorus]

                D                   Bm7
When I see your face, there's not a thing that I would change
              G                        D
Cause you're amazing, just the way you are
             D                      Bm7
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for awhile
                   G                        D
Cause girl you're amazing, just the way you are


[Interlude]

            D                Bm7
The way you are, the way you are
             G                        D
Girl you're amazing, just the way you are


[Chorus]

                D                   Bm7
When I see your face, there's not a thing that I would change
              G                        D
Cause you're amazing, just the way you are
             D                      Bm7
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for awhile
                   G                        D
Cause girl you're amazing, just the way you are
