CHORD SHAPES

Welcome to this Let’s Hurt Tonight Guitar Tutorial from OneRepublic! Lets hurt tonight is a super emotional driven ballad with a very simple strumming pattern played all the way though the song. In terms of chords we only use a total of 4 for the whole song! The only difficult part is that these chords are played as barre chords – but it is great practice for those wanting to improve their barre chord strength. I would suggest focusing on the power chords to get confident with the song, slowly improving until you can play with the full barre chords.

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