Sharing buttons:

hi guys this is he in and in today's

video song tutorial I'm gonna be

teaching you how to sing and play the

song the book of love which was

originally written and performed by the

magnetic fields but I'm gonna be

teaching you Peter Gabriel's version of

the song okay now with my tutorials in

today's tutorial I'm going to be

covering three main things I wouldn't be

giving you some simple chords simple

strumming pattern and then I'm going to

step you through the entire song to show

you where the codes fit in with the

lyrics of the song okay and also at the

end of the tutorial if there is time I'm

trying to give you some additional

beginner tips to help those of you who

still have trouble with pressing and

changing chords to play the song to get

their song easier okay

now this is a really nice song it has

it's a very simple progression which is

played pretty much throughout the entire

song okay so once you get the

progression you could get through the

song okay so anyway this song is

originally in the key of a-flat

so if you want to use these chords in

this tutorial with the original version

of Peter gables version of the song you

can pull the first fret and just use the

chords which I'm gonna show you in

today's tutorial okay so anyway with

that the course which we're going to be

using today they are only three chords

okay so pretty easy song just G G major

C major

okay so just those three chords those

are the three chords in the entire song

and the song pretty much follows a loop

of G C D and G alright so it's just

looping that for the entire song so and

the shrimp pattern I'll briefly go over

it with you now throughout the song you

just going so that's a shrimp pattern

which I'd be using in the song if you

want to see how the strum pattern is

applied with the chords and the whole

you don't see a whole demonstration of

the chords the stream pattern in the

song please check out the cover video of

this song which is available on my

channel okay and that will demonstrate

the whole thing for you but for now I'm

gonna do is I'm going to step you

through the song to show you where the

courts fit in with the lyrics okay now

first when you start the song you're

going to start with an introduction

okay and when you're playing the intro

you're basically you're basically just

playing G C D G you're going to look at

that four times so you go

see

they just do that G C D G four times and

then you go into the first verse of the

song so you stop G the book of see love

is D long and G boring the G no one can

see live

the deep down thing gg

[Music]

it's full of see John's and the facts

and figures and then G and instructions

for T tangi say so from though you

stopped going high and then you go the G

then C but C 5 d g i-- g I love it see

when you deep breathe to G & G you C D G

[Music]

the G you can see read me D 10 G Fey

and then you go back to G the book of C

love has D music G the G in fact that C

when the music comes G from the G solve

it

see just deep trans and G dental the G

some of it just see it's just some of it

see it's just deep really G

then jig it but I see Heidi hi Gigi I

love it see when you d say to g ng u C D

G G you can see see me D G ok then after

this part what you're gonna do is you're

gonna be playing the bridge which is

basically like the intro you're playing

a loop of G C D G and you play it four

times so it B you can sing me anything

[Music]

two three four and then after you played

the fourth when you finish the fourth

loop you go back into the course again

sorry you go back into the last verse

weights G Macklowe again start singing

okay love is d g g and written C very d

G the G it's full of see flowers and D

shape G bosses G and things were co2 D -

G

and then you're going to the final you

go into the final loop of the chorus

where it's awesome G but see I D G by G

love it see when you did give me G

things

ng you see DG g you want to see give me

D wedding G

Angie I see Heidi

i G i G I love it see when you d give me

G face and military ng and you C D G

[Music]

gee you want to see give me D where D G

real and then from here you you repeat

the last line again you want to give me

where degrees and effect G you want to

see give me D where D G reads then one

more time G you want to see give me D

wedding G

[Music]

okay and you can just end the song like

that all right

so that's where all the chords fit in

with the lyrics as I said before very

straightforward song only uses three

chords and then loops it the same thing

throughout the entire song but you know

I just stepped you through it just for

the sake of showing you where the chords

fit exactly with the song okay so with

that okay just a quick additional tip

for beginners those of you who have

trouble with pressing and changing

chords as usual used to use the training

wheel chords which don't require you to

move your fingers so much when you're

changing between chords so basically the

training wheel chords which you'd use in

this tutorial

instead of using say C and just D you'd

play C at 9:00 instead of C and you play

D sustain for instead of T because if I

see at night instead of seeing and D is

sustained for instead of me and the

reason this is better for those of you

who have trouble with pressing and

changing quarters because you don't have

to move your hand around so much when

you're changing between codes all you

have to do is go from here from G to C

at 9:00 to go see at 9:00 to D sustain

for okay and if you're not sure how the

press was called please check the

coordinates which is available on the

learn guitar fast if stuck on website

and or just check the tutorial notes

which are included with this tutorial

okay so there G C a and D sustain for

those of you who have trouble pressing

changing chords and it sounds absolutely

fine if you use them alright I'll just

give you a very quick example so G

[Music]

okay so that's what it sounds like and

it sounds pretty good so just use those
