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 Red Guitar Tutorial from Taylor Swift. For this particular lesson i’ll be running through the picking in the verse as well as strummed chords throughout the rest of the song. Finally I’ll also teach you how to play the solo in the song which is quick and fun!

At the end of the video i’ll be playing through the entirety of #red with a vocal track on top for you to play along to.

Enjoy! Like this #red video by #taylorswift and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future! My awesome friend Clancy has provided the vocals with her amazing voice be sure to check out her channel and subscribe ūüôā

                    F                 Am
Lovin' him is like, drivin' a new Maserati
                G
Down a dead end street
F                           Am
Faster than the wind, passionate as sin
         G
Ended so suddenly
                    F
Loving him is like, tryin' to change your mind 
            Am                         G
Once you're already flying through the free fall
         F                  Am
Like the colors in autumn so bright
                 G          N.C.
Just before they lose it all


[Chorus]

               F                    C
Losing him was blue, like I'd never known
                G
Missing him was dark grey, all alone
                   F                       Am
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody
          G
You never met
                   F
But loving him was red
          Am        G
Re ee ed, re ee ed, re ee ed
               F
Lovin' him was red
          Am        G
Re ee ed, re ee ed, re ee ed


[Verse]

                       F                      Am
Touching him was like, realizing all you ever wanted 
                   G
Was right there in front of you
                       F                       Am
Memorizing him was as, easy as knowin' all the words
                    G
To your old favorite song
                           F 
Fighting with him was like tryin' to solve a 
              Am                           G
Crossword and realizing there's no right answer
                        F                        Am
Regretting him was like wishing you never found out 
                       G
That love could be that strong 


[Chorus]

               F                    C
Losing him was blue, like I'd never known
                G
Missing him was dark grey, all alone
                   F                       Am
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody
          G
You never met
                   F
But loving him was red
          Am           G
Re ee ed, re ee ed, oh red, re ee ed
        F              Am
Burnin' red, re ee ed, re ee ed
G
Re ee ed, 


[Bridge]

                         F               C
Remembering him comes in flashbacks and echos
                    Am             G
Tellin' myself it's time now gotta let go 
                   F
But moving on from him is impossible 
     C                       G     
When I still see it all in my, head 
            F   Am  G
And burning red
       F      Am  G
Burning was reeeeed
  

[Chorus]

                  F F F N.C.             C C C N.C.
Oh losing him was blue, like I'd never known
                G G G N.C.           G G G 
Missing him was dark grey, all alone
                   F                       Am
Forgetting him was like tryin' to know somebody
          G
You never met
                     F
Cause loving him was red
Am          G
Yeah, yeah, red
           F   Am  G
Oh Burning reeeeeeeed


[Outro]

           F                  Am              G
And that's Why he's spinnin' 'round in my head
                              F   
Comes back to me, burnin' red 
  Am      G
Yeah, yeah

                   F                 Am 
His love was like, drivin' a new Maserati
               G 
Down a dead end street.
