Welcome to this You Are The Reason Guitar Tutorial by Calum Scott!
I’ve had a whole bunch of requests for this song, I had never heard it but now I know what the fuss was about. This is a beautiful track with a waltz feel, it’s originally played on piano but transfers well over to guitar. In this lesson i’ll show you 2 different ways of playing the song.

  1. Method 1 – Fingerpicking version
  2. Method 2 – Easy strummed version

At the end of the video i’ll have a full play-through of each version. I also have a guest vocalist singing on top for context, she’s a fellow you-tuber and i’m just amazed by how she sounds in this song. Check out her youtube channel below 🙂

[Intro]
G    Em7   Cadd9    D  G

[Verse 1]
              G
There goes my heart beating
                  Em7
Cause you are the reason
              Cadd9     D
I'm losing my sleep
                 G
Please come back now
              G
There goes my mind racing
                Em7
And you are the reason
               Cadd9       D
That I'm still breathing
             Em7    
I'm hopeless now

[Chorus]
    G/B         Cadd9        D
I'd climb every mountain
               Em7
And swim every ocean
           Cadd9      D
Just to be with you
                  G       D
And fix what I've broken
          Em7 D/F#  G      C      Cm
Oh, cause I   need you to see
                 G
That you are the reason

[Verse 2]
              G
There goes my hands shaking
                Em7
And you are the reason
               Cadd9       D
My heart keeps bleeding
           G
I need you now
           G
If I could turn back the clock
                  Em7
I'd make sure the light defeated the dark
                Cadd9          D
I'd spend every hour, of every day
            Em7
Keeping you safe

[Chorus]
    G/B          Cadd9    D
I'd climb every mountain
               Em7
And swim every ocean
           Cadd9      D
Just to be with you
                  G       D
And fix what I've broken
          Em7 D/F#  G      C      Cm
Oh, cause I   need you to see

[Bridge]
                 Cadd9    D      Em7  D/F#   G/B
That you are the reason
            C         D      Em7  D/F#   
You are the reason
  G/B                 C          D
I need you to hold me tonight

[Outro]
                Cadd9      D
I'd climb every mountain
               Em7
And swim every ocean
           Cadd9     D
Just to be with you
                  G        D
And fix what I've broken
      Em7 D/F# G       C     Cm
Cause I   need you to  see
                 G
That you are the reason
