Lesson notes

Sing is a song by the popular English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, which was released as the lead single of his new second album ‘X’.

It features two barre chords, from the E and A families, and fast uptempo strumming at the speed of 16ths. A few hammer-ons as well as muting the strings with the fretting hand should be incorporated as well.

The lesson takes a look at the three main patterns which are being played on the original. There are also a few examples of how he plays it in live performances as well.

In the end, Ed Sheeran’s playing in general is very free form and random, this song is no exception to that. Basic strumming skills are absolutely needed.
