Welcome to this I See Fire Guitar Tutorial by Ed Sheeran! It’s been a long time coming but I just wanted to make sure I did justice to this song and to bring you the easiest lesson possible. #iseefire was apart of The Hobbit soundtrack and was an instant fan favourite. The main riff/intro of this song is iconic and just sounds amazing when played properly.

Many beginners get intimidated by the start of the song and therefore put off learning I See Fire, however this song is actually much easier to play than people think. the intro is the hardest part, however if it is too hard, I teach an easy way of playing it which almost anyone could play.

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

[Intro]

Em C D Em

[Verse 1]
              Em     G
If this is to end in fire
               D        C
Then we should all burn together
          Em           G    D        Am7
Watch the flames climb high into the night
        Em    G         D            C
Calling out father, oh, stand by and we will
          Am7         G/B           C
Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side

[Break]
Em C D Em

[Verse 2]
                 Em    G
And if we should die tonight
               D       C
Then we should all die together
        Em       G   D        Am7
Raise a glass of wine for the last time
        Em    G         D          C
Calling out father, oh, prepare as we will
          Am7         G/B            C
Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side
    Am7    G/B            C
Desolation comes upon the sky

[Chorus]
          Em7  Cadd9  Dadd4      Em7          
Now I see fire,       inside the mountain
      Em7  Cadd9  D           Em7
I see fire,       burning the trees 
          Em7  Cadd9  D         Em7
And I see fire,       hollowing souls
      Em7  Cadd7  D            Am7
I see fire,       blood in the breeze
And I hope that you'll remember me

[Break]

[Verse 2]
              Em     G
Oh, should my people fall
            D           C
Then surely I'll do the same
            Em       G
Confined in mountain halls
           D            Am7
We got too close to the flame
        Em     G        D             C     
Calling out father, oh, hold fast and we will
          Am7         G/B           C
Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side
    Am7    G/B            C
Desolation comes upon the sky

[Chorus]
          Em7  Cadd9  Dadd4      Em7          
Now I see fire,       inside the mountain
      Em7  Cadd9  D           Em7
I see fire,       burning the trees 
          Em7  Cadd9  D         Em7
And I see fire,       hollowing souls
      Em7  Cadd7  D            Am7
I see fire,       blood in the breeze
      Am7
And I hope that you'll remember me

[Bridge]
           Am7      Em
And if the night is burning
       G        D
I will cover my eyes
           Am7    Em
For if the dark returns then
   G             D
My brothers will die
           Am7            Em
And as the sky is falling down
           G                D
It crashed into this lonely town
              Am7                   
And with that shadow upon the ground
  G/B     C                D
I hear my people screaming out

[Chorus/Outro]
          Em7  Cadd9  D          Em7         
Now I see fire,       inside the mountain
      Em7  Cadd9  D           Em7
I see fire,       burning the trees 
          Em7  Cadd9  D         Em7
And I see fire,       hollowing souls
      Em7  Cadd9  D            Em7
I see fire,       blood in the breeze
      Em7           Cadd9                 D        Em7
I see fire, oh you know I saw a city burning (fire)
      Em7         Cadd9                D     Em7
I see fire, feel the heat upon my skin (fire)
          Em7   Cadd9       D  Em 
And I see fire, oooooo (fire)
          Em7        Cadd9             D        Em7
And I see fire burn auburn on the mountain side
