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 You’re Beautiful Guitar Tutorial from singer songwriter, James Blunt! This was his breakout single at a time when Ed Sheeran wasn’t dominating the charts! This is such a beautiful song which is incredibly easy to play so it’ll be great for beginners. I’ll also teach you how to play the main riff melody in the intro and break.

At the end of the video i’ll be playing through the entirety of #you’re beautiful with a vocal track on top for you to play along to. Enjoy! Like this #yourebeautiful video by #jamesblunt and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!

[Intro]
 
G   D/F#  Em7  Cadd9   x2


[Verse 1]

G
My life is brilliant.
D/F#
My love is pure.
Em7
I saw an angel.
Cadd9
Of that I'm sure.
    G
She smiled at me on the subway.
        D/F#
She was with another man.
    Em7
But I won't lose no sleep on that,
       Cadd9     
'Cause I've got a plan.


[Chorus]
 
Cadd9        D/F# Em7          D/F#
You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
Cadd9        D/F#      G
You're beautiful, it's true.
  Cadd9    D/F#      G   D/F# Em7
I saw your face in a crowded  place,
      Cadd9      D/F#    Em7
And I don't know what to do.
            Cadd9 D/F#    G     D/F#    Em7     Cadd9
'Cause I'll never be with you. 


[Verse 2]

           G
Yeah, she caught my eye, 
      D/F#
As we walked on by.
          Em7
She could see from my face that I was, 
Cadd9
  Flying high, 
    G                       D/F#
And I don't think that I'll see her again, 
    Em7                          Cadd9
But we shared a moment that will last till the end. 


[Chorus]

 Cadd9        D/F# Em7          D/F#
You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
Cadd9        D/F#      G
You're beautiful, it's true.
  Cadd9    D/F#      G   D/F# Em7
I saw your face in a crowded  place,
      Cadd9      D/F#    Em7
And I don't know what to do.
            Cadd9 D/F#    G
'Cause I'll never be with you.


[Interlude]

Cadd9  Em7  x3
Am  D/F#

[Outro]

 Cadd9        D/F# Em7          D/F#
You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
Cadd9        D/F#      G
You're beautiful, it's true.
      Cadd9      D/F#         G        D/F# Em7
There must be an angel with a smile on her  face,
         Cadd9                    D/F#          G D/F# Em7 
When she thought up that I should be with you. 
         Cadd9   D/F#     Em7
But it's time to face the truth, 
       Cadd9 D/F#     G
I will never be with you.
