CHORD SHAPES (NO CAPO VERSION)

CHORD SHAPES (CAPO ON 2ND FRET)

Welcome to this Beautiful Soul Guitar Tutorial by Jesse McCartney!
I’ve had a whole heap of requests for this song, so thought it was time to do a lesson! In this video I’ll teach you 2 ways of playing this song.

1. Easy version – Capo required on 2nd fret
2. Harder version – No capo but how Jesse’s guitarists play it live

Both version are essentially the same, but I much prefer the easy version and it’s actually what Boyce Avenue do for their version.

Big thanks to Eric Ben for his vocals on this track, check out his Youtube channel here – https://www.youtube.com/user/ericbengayomali

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