The original song is played by Ed Sheeran with a fingerstyle approach to playing the chords which creates an interesting sound and rhythmic feel (but can be challenging for the beginner guitar player) This lesson teaches how to play that style in the second half of the lesson (starts at 11:17). The first half of the lesson focuses on a simpler way to play the song using a guitar pick and is geared more to the beginner guitar player.
This lesson also teaches how to play easy chords as alternative versions of some of the more complicated chords like the Bmin chord which is a barre chord. You will also learn a simpler strumming pattern so that you can quickly start playing the song. As you become more comfortable in the chord progression and changing chords quickly, you can progress to the Ed Sheeran style of finger style guitar.
