Loving can hurt
C#m
Loving can hurt sometimes
Bsus4
But it’s the only thing
Asus2
That I know

E
And when it gets hard
C#m
You know it can get hard sometimes
Bsus4 Asus2
It is the only thing that makes us feel alive

E C#m
We keep this love in a photograph
Bsus4 Asus2
We made these memories for ourselves
E
Where our eyes are never closing
C#m
Our hearts are never broken
Bsus4 Asus2
And times are forever frozen still

E
So you can keep me inside the pocket
C#m
Of your ripped jeans holdin’ me closer
Bsus4 Asus2
Til our eyes meet you won’t ever be alone
E C#m Bsus4 Asus2
Wait for me to come home

E
Loving can heal
C#m
Loving can mend your soul
Bsus4 Asus2
And is the only thing that I know (know)
E
I swear it will get easier
C#m
Remember that with every piece of ya
Bsus4 Asus2
And it’s the only thing we take with us when we die

E C#m
We keep this love in a photograph
Bsus4 Asus2
We made these memories for ourselves
E
Where our eyes are never closing
C#m
Our hearts are never broken
Bsus4 Asus2
And times are forever frozen still

E
So you can keep me inside the pocket
C#m
Of your ripped jeans holdin’ me closer
Bsus4 Asus2
Til our eyes meet you won’t ever be alone

E
And if you hurt me
C#m
Well that’s okay baby only words bleed
Bsus4
Inside these pages you just hold me
Asus2
And I won’t ever let you go

E
Wait for me to come home
C#m
Wait for me to come home
Bsus4
Wait for me to come home
Asus2
Wait for me to come home

E
Oh you can fit me inside the necklace you got when you were
C#m
16 next to your heartbeat where I
Bsus4 Asus2
should be, keep it deep within your soul

E
And if you hurt me
C#m
Well that’s okay baby only words bleed
Bsus4
Inside these pages you just hold me
Asus2
And I won’t ever let you go

E
When I’m away
C#m
I will remember how you kissed me

Under the lamppost
Bsus4
Back on 6th street

Hearing you whisper through the phone
Asus2
Wait for me to come home

Ed Sheeran’s popular hit Photograph  was one of his early breakout successes, and is a great song to learn as a solo acoustic guitar and voice number, or with the backing of a small acoustic band.

 

This is a relatively easy song for a beginning guitarist to master, and can be a great asset to your repertoire!

Learn How To Play Ed Sheeran Photograph Guitar Chords

ed sheeran photograph guitar tabIn an ever widening pop music market, with artists coming and going, each with their own ideas and sounds, it can be hard for a particular song to emerge from the whirlwind of pop singles to make an impact. One song that has made an impact is Photograph by British singer, songwriter and musician Ed Sheeran. An undeniable hit, the vivid imagery in the lyrics and combination of an acoustics guitar, piano and programmed drums describes Sheeran’s experiences with a long distance relationship with his then girlfriend while he was touring the world. An undeniable hit, it peaked at number ten in the United States, while in the United Kingdom, it reached number 15 and the single CD has sold over six hundred thousand units. It was an even bigger hit elsewhere in the world; in Australia and Canada, the single was certified double platinum and in New Zealand and Italy, it reached platinum status.

ed-sheeran-photograph-guitar-tabThe song’s guitar chords are a vital part of its success, particularly when combined with a piano player. Its opening D chords consist of a swift GeB motion. The Bm chords that follow it are a bit trickier, consisting of one long pluck down the entire guitar’s strings, followed by a soothing BDG movement. Its A chords are far less complicated, consisting of a straight shot DGB movement across the center of the guitar. The trickiest chords are the G chords, which require some practicing moving across the strings to reach the required AEe motion. The exact arrangement of these chords is available online, along with guides for where the lyrics go in the guitar chords. The song was initially recorded with an acoustic guitar, and that instrument is undeniably the tool best suited for the job of playing ìPhotographî, though for best results, it is also wise to involve a piano and a drummer. While these are not the easiest things to arrange, the song itself calls for both the other instruments.

ìPhotographî was written by Ed Sheeran and Snow Patrol alumnus Johnny McDaid, and it was produced by Jeff Bhasker, who recorded the version that Sheeran preferred the most, as he had used other producers for multiple versions of the song. A very mellow song, it was praised by critics across the United Kingdom. Its accompanying music video was recorded in 2015, and included real footage from Sheeran’s childhood, recorded as home video over the course of his youth before being compiled for a family Christmas gift and carefully edited to serve as a part of the music video, directed by previous Sheeran collaborator Emil Nava. Editor Ellie Johnson worked with Ed Sheeran’s father over the course of a weekend to get the footage together. In the footage, we see Sheeran playing a number of instruments over the course of his childhood, as well as playing with Legos. Overall, ìPhotographî just works. The soothing chords of the piano and the guitar, combined with the vividly descriptive lyrics paint a picture of a complex relationship over a great distance.
