It's a nice cheesy love song, I first wondered whether it was Ed Sheeran written.

What really has hooked me is the guitar work and lots of YouTubers have had a crack but nobody has nailed it.

It has a bass note chord strike pattern on a slightly crunchy electric guitar. Nearest I get is with a thumb strike and finger pluck but to me it sounds more like a strum which is then muted.

Why I think it is strummed is that there is a muted string rhythm in the background. At first I thought it was brushes but I think that might just be verse 3.

How do people think it is constructed? How many guitars and basses?

[p]That's the essence of it. It's a straight 1/8th note groove with a bass note, some ghost strums & staccato stabs on the upper register chord triads associated with each bass note. It's a pretty stereotypically R&B type of guitar part groove.

So the first two chords look like this:

|----------6--------------6------|----------6--------------6------|

|----------7--------------7------|----------6--------------6------|

|----------6--------------6------|----------6--------------6------|

|---------------------------------|----------------------------------|

|------X--------X--X-------X--|------X--------X--X--------X--|

|--2--X-----2--X--X-------X--|--6--X-----6--X--X-------X--|

That first chord is a stretch! I'd do it by moving positions. But it might be done by using a capo on the 2nd fret, or it could be 2 separate guitar parts. But all of that is possible one guitar.

Hope that helps!

Ilsey being the daughter of the amazing (ok, I'm biased) of Laurence Juber.
