CHORD SHAPES

Welcome to this Far Away Guitar Tutorial by Nickelback! This is a really melodic tune and has a great picking riff throughout the verses. Structure wise, the song is incredibly easy to remember.

The only downside for beginners is that this song has a lot of barre chords but that means it’s a good one for practicing your barre chords.

If you’re struggling with the barre chords, be sure to check out my video on the 5 reasons why your barre chords suck https://youtu.be/y5FSu_WqJhg

[Intro]

B  F# G#m  E  
 

[Verse 1]

B         F#         G#m  
 This time, This place 
     E          B 
Misused, Mistakes 
       F#        G#m 
Too long, Too late 
        E              B 
Who was I to make you wait 
            F# 
Just one chance 
           G#m 
Just one breath 
          E                     C#m 
Just in case there's just one left 
  C#m 
'Cause you know, 
      E        F# 
you know, you know 


[Chorus]

B       F#    
That I love you 
G#m      E              B 
I have loved you all along 
B       F# 
And I miss you 
G#m        E                B 
Been far away for far too long 
B        F#      G#m           E 
I keep dreaming you'll be with me 
E                 B 
and you'll never go 
B      F#       
Stop breathing 
G#m         E 
If I don't see you any more...


 
[Verse 2]

B         F#         G#m  
On my knees, I'll ask 
     E                    B 
Last chance for one last dance 
              F#        G#m 
'Cause with you, I'd withstand 
        E                      B 
All of hell to hold your hand 
             F# 
I'd give it all 
               G#m
I'd give for us 
          E                       C#m 
Give anything but I won't give up 

'Cause you know, 
      E        F# 
you know, you know 


[Chorus]

B       F#    
That I love you 
G#m      E              B 
I have loved you all along 
B       F# 
And I miss you 
G#m        E                B 
Been far away for far too long 
B        F#      G#m           E 
I keep dreaming you'll be with me 
E                 B 
and you'll never go 
B      F#       
Stop breathing 
G#m         E 
If I don't see you any more...

B        F#        G#m 
So far away (Far away) 
G#m        E                B 
Been far away for far too long 
B        F#        G#m 
So far away (Far away)

I wanted

I need to hear you say...
