Today I'll be showing you how to play Shawn Mendes' "The Weight" on guitar. This is a great acoustic guitar song. We'll be using some muted strum patterns and some nice pop chord progressions. Its also a good song for people who need to practice their B minor chords. I'll show you how to play a variation on the B minor chord: the "B minor 7" chord in this video and its an awesome substitution for a regular B minor sound. I'll teach you all the other chords and strum patterns in the video too and you can use the chord chart below to sing and play along! Enjoy!
