Lesson notes

When We Were Young is a soul ballad by British singer-songwriter Adele. It’s taken from her 2015 album ‘25’ and was released as the 2nd single early 2016.

It features a piano arrangement in the key of Cm/Eb, but translates very well to the guitar by capoing it at the 3rd fret and using shapes in the key of Am/C instead. A few chords might be challenging still.

We take a look at a couple of ways for the right hand, as in one could fingerpick through the song, or strum it, or use a combination of both. It’s highly encouraged to find your own way of playing it.
