Lesson notes

I See Fire is a song from ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’, written, composed and performed by a very talented and young English singer-songwriter, Ed Sheeran.

It features a simple chord progression and a few chords in open position in the key of Em. There are syncopated chord changes and the strings need to be consistently muted with the fretting hand on beats 2 and 4.

The biggest challenge lies within the tricky yet great sounding intro riff, with a few embellishments like hammer-ons and pull-offs.
