CHORD SHAPES

Welcome to this In My Blood Guitar Tutorial by Shawn Mendes! This is Shawn’s latest single and has a larger stadium rock feel to it, especially in the chorus. This song has a range of cool things to learn including the intro fingerpicking and the chorus lead part. The chords are the same the whole way through the song which is great, the only downside is that they are barre chords – but don’t let this discourage you (even the capo version would have atleast 1 barre chord). Keep practicing and you’ll get there.

5 reasons your barre chords suck – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5FSu_WqJhg

[Intro]
F                      Bb
Help me, it's like the walls are caving in
    Dm
Sometimes I feel like giving up
    Bb                           F
But I just can't, it isn't in my blood


[Verse 1]
                                              Bb
Laying on the bathroom floor, feeling nothing

I'm overwhelmed and insecure
                  Dm
Give me something
                                    Bb
I could take to ease my mind slowly
                                  F
Just have a drink and you'll feel better
                                   Bb
Just take her home and you'll feel better
                             Dm
Keep telling me that it gets better
        Bb
Does it ever?


[Chorus]
F                      Bb
Help me, it's like the walls are caving in
    Dm
Sometimes I feel like giving up
   Bb
No medicine is strong enough
        F
Someone help me
    Bb
I'm crawling in my skin
    Dm
Sometimes I feel like giving up
    Bb                           F      Bb
But I just can't, it isn't in my blood
               Dm     Bb
It isn't in my blood

[Verse 2]
F                                              Bb
Looking through my phone again feeling anxious
                                      Dm
Afraid to be alone again, I hate this
                                         Bb
I'm trying to find a way to chill, can't breathe, oh
                             F
Is there somebody that could help me?


[Chorus]
              Bb
It's like the walls are caving in
    Dm
Sometimes I feel like giving up
   Bb
No medicine is strong enough
        F
Someone help me
    Bb
I'm crawling in my skin
    Dm
Sometimes I feel like giving up
    Bb                           F      Bb
But I just can't, it isn't in my blood
               Dm     Bb
It isn't in my blood


[Bridge]
                F
I need somebody now
                Bb
I need somebody now
                   Dm
Someone to help me out
                Bb
I need somebody now


[Outro]
F
Help me
              Bb
It's like the wall are caving in
    Dm
Sometimes I feel like giving up
    Bb                           F       Bb
But I just can't, it isn't in my blood
               Dm     Bb
It isn't in my blood
               F
It isn't in my blood
                Bb
I need somebody now
               Dm
It isn't in my blood
                Bb
I need somebody now
               F      Bb   Dm   Bb
It isn't in my blood
