CAPO  ON 2ND CHORD SHAPES

Welcome to this Call It What You Want Guitar Tutorial by Taylor Swift! #callitwhatyouwant is the latest track Taylor’s released from her upcoming album reputation and is a much more laid back and cruisey song than the first 2 singles. It’s a really simple song to play, with a couple of a chord progressions and basic strumming patterns. In this video i’ll teach you 2 ways of playing this song.

  1. With capo on 2nd – Easier to play with only open chord shapes
  2. No capo – Still easy but has barre chords involved

At the end of the video i’ll be playing through all of #callitwhatyouwant with vocals from a fellow youtuber for some context. Clancy Bella is the beautiful voice in the playthough, be sure to check out her cover of this song and subscribe to her awesome covers channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnjnxOsPyuA

Play along and see how you go. 🙂 Enjoy! Like this #callitwhatyouwant video by #taylorswift and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!

[Intro]
D A E F#m

[Verse 1]
D                         
   My castle crumbled overnight
A                       
   I brought a knife to a gunfight
E                                  F#m
   They took the crown but it's alright
D                          
   All the liars are calling me one
A                             
   Nobody's heard from me for months
E                           F#m
   I'm doing better than I ever was

[Chorus]
Cause...
D                         
  My baby's fit like a daydream
A                      
Walking with his head down
                             E
I'm the one he's walking to
   F#m
So call it what you want, yeah
Call it what you want to
D
   My baby's fly like a jet stream
A
High above the whole scene
                            E
Loves me like I'm brand new
   F#m                      
So call it what you want, yeah
Call it what you want to

[Verse 2]
D                               
   All my flowers grew back as thorns
A                              
   Windows boarded up after the storm
E                                       F#m
   He built a fire just to keep me warm
D                               
    All the drama queens taking swings
A                                
    All the jokers dressing up as kings
E                                       F#m
    They fade to nothing when I look at him
D                                          
    And I know I make the same mistakes every time
A
Bridges burn, I never learn
                         E
At least I did one thing right
                F#m
I did one thing right
D
  I'm laughing with my lover
Making forts under covers
A
   Trust him like a brother
                               E
Yeah, you know I did one thing right
F#m                                
Starry eyes sparking up my darkest night

[Chorus]
Cause...
D                         
  My baby's fit like a daydream
A                      
Walking with his head down
                             E
I'm the one he's walking to
   F#m
So call it what you want, yeah
Call it what you want to
D
   My baby's fly like a jet stream
A
High above the whole scene
                            E
Loves me like I'm brand new
   F#m                      
So call it what you want, yeah
Call it what you want to


[Bridge]
D          E                     F#m
 I want to wear his initial on a chain round my neck
Chain round my neck
               D           E
Not because he owns me
                     F#m
But 'cause he really knows me
Which is more than they can say, I
D                   E
  I recall late November, holding my breath
F#m                               D        E
Slowly I said, "You don't need to save me
                  F#m
But would you run away with me?"
Yes (would you run away?)

[Chorus]
Cause...
D                         
  My baby's fit like a daydream
A                      
Walking with his head down
                             E
I'm the one he's walking to
   F#m
So call it what you want, yeah
Call it what you want to
D
   My baby's fly like a jet stream
A
High above the whole scene
                            E
Loves me like I'm brand new
   F#m                      
So call it what you want, yeah
Call it what you want to
