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 Somebody That I Used To Know Guitar Tutorial from Gotye Feat. Kimbra. For this particular lesson i’ll be running through the main picked riff which is really easy. I’ll also teach you some easy chords to strum if you’re after a way of playing and singing along by yourself.

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

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

[Verse]

Dm      C      Dm  C    Dm   C  Dm  C
Now and then I think of when we were together
Dm      C      Dm  C    Dm   C  Dm  C
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Dm      C      Dm  C    Dm   C  Dm  C    
Told myself that you were right for me
Dm      C      Dm  C    Dm   C  Dm  C
But felt so lonely in your company
Dm      C      Dm  C    Dm   C  Dm  C
But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

Dm  C  Dm  C x4


[Verse 2]

Dm      C      Dm  C    Dm   C  Dm  C
You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Dm      C      Dm  C    Dm   C  Dm  C
Like resignation to the end
Dm      C      Dm  C    Dm   C  Dm  C
Always the end
Dm      C      Dm  C    Dm   C  Dm  C
So when we found that we could not make sense
Dm      C      Dm  C    Dm   C  Dm  C
Well you said that we would still be friends
Dm      C      Dm  C    Dm   C  Dm  C
But I'll admit that I was glad that it was over

Dm      C              Bb   C
But you didn't have to cut me off
Dm       C          Bb
Make out like it never happened
         C          Dm
And that we were nothing
    C             Bb      C
And I don't even need your love
         Dm              C
But you treat me like a stranger
          Bb      C
And that feels so rough
Dm      C              Bb   C
You didn't have to stoop so low
Dm       C          Bb
Have your friends collect your records
           C          Dm
And then change your number
     C            Bb       C
I guess that I don't need that though
         Dm              C
Now you're just somebody that I used to know


[Verse 3]

Dm       C             Dm                  C          Dm  C  Dm  C      
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
Dm          C                Dm             C      Dm   C  Dm  C
But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
C     
And I don't wanna live that way
C    
Reading into every word you say
C     
You said that you could let it go
C
And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know...


[Chorus]

Dm      C              Bb   C
But you didn't have to cut me off
Dm       C          Bb
Make out like it never happened
         C          Dm
And that we were nothing
    C             Bb      C
And I don't even need your love
         Dm              C
But you treat me like a stranger
          Bb      C
And that feels so rough
Dm      C              Bb   C
You didn't have to stoop so low
Dm       C          Bb
Have your friends collect your records
           C          Dm
And then change your number
     C             Bb      C
I guess that I don't need that though
         Dm              C
Now you're just somebody that I used to know


[Outro]

Dm  C    Bb C
I used to know
Dm   C    Bb  C
That I used to know
Dm   C    Bb  C
That I used to know
Dm    C   Bb  C
Somebody...
