Jessie Ware "Tough Love" / by Shawn Parrotte

Like Prince's minimal sound during the 80's, Jessie Ware's "Tough Love" really packs a punch, despite its low key approach and glitchy digital sound. The melody is where all the action is on this tune. She only uses three chords: G, Am, and F and accomplishes a lot by crafting sensitive and heavy vocal lines. In the guitar lesson above, I'll teach you how to play those chords and give you some strum patterns you could use to capture the feel of the song. And the chord chart below will help you when you want to sing along at the same time. I hope you enjoy this lesson!
