As you know, this song is originally not an acoustic song. It is more of a power ballad, but the version taught in the video lesson below sounds beautiful on acoustic guitar. Marty Schwartz has created an easy version of this song that requires no barre chords. It is played using a capo on the fifth fret using beginner guitar chord shapes and those are: A Minor, C Major, G Major, D Minor, F Major (Don’t worry about the F Chord. Follow this link for an easy version for beginners).
Marty breaks this song down step by step teaching you the verse, pre-chorus, chorus and the bridge. He also explains the strumming pattern. Watch the video tutorial below to learn more!
