James Bay "When We Were On Fire" / by Shawn Parrotte

Today I'm going to show you this edgy, bluesy tune by James Bay on guitar. "When We Were On Fire" features an alternate tuning, D Standard, where you detune each string one whole step. It make our guitar sound bass-y and bold, even my little Martin LXK2 sounds deep when you do this. We have some cool strum patterns here, some nice grooves that I'll show you how to play in the video above. Once you got all the part down you can use the chord chart below to sing and play along. Have fun!
