Welcome to this Falling Like The Stars Guitar Tutorial by James Arthur!
This song is an amazing love ballad and is sure to be played at many weddings in future years to come! Musically speaking it’s a very simple song with one main chord progression throughout. It’s a great one for beginners to learn. In the video I teach you 2 different ways of playing the song.

  1. Fingerpicked version (studio version)
  2. Easy strummed version (great for beginners)

You can ofcourse mix the two together as you please and that’s what I do in the playthrough at the end of the video.

My good friend @emilebattourmusic has lended his incredible vocals for this song. Check him out on instagram.

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

   You're still the girl in the club
Fsus2                                            C
