Perfect Chords and Lyrics by Ed Sheeran – Easy version

Another banger from the red-haired hit machine that is Ed Sheeran. And the Perfect chords are simple enough for beginner guitarists.

Perfect chords

The Perfect chords are all fairly easy for beginner guitarists, but there are six chords in the song, so it’s a little more challenging that others on our list of 100 easy guitar songs.

If you’ve learned Wonderwall, you’re already mostly there, as it mostlyshares the same chords.

Sheeran plucks the chords with his fingers, sounding the bass note and the high 2nd and 3rd strings. But if you’re a beginner feel free to strum along at first, following the chord changes.

Perfect Chords

Capo 1st fret.

Relative to the capo, the Perfect chords are: G, Em7, Cadd9, Dsus4, D/F#, G/B.

G chord guitar
Em7 chord guitar
Cadd9 chord
Dsus4 chord
