Welcome to Throwback Thursday’s where I teach you a classic hit from the last 4-5 decades! This week, by request, I’ll be covering a Boyfriend Guitar Tutorial from Justin Bieber (The Acoustic Version)! This rendition of the song comes from his Acoustic Believe album and the guitar work is actually quite impressive. It sounds super complicated but at its core, it’s a very simple song with only a few main playing positions and structures.

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