🎸 Shallow • guitar lesson w/ intro fingerpicking riff, chords, and more (A Star is Born)

Notes & tabs for this lesson: http://playsongnotes.com/songs/lady-gaga-shallow/

In this lesson, I’ll teach you how to play “Shallow” from the 2018 “A Star is Born” film, featuring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. I’ll explain the fingerpicking riff heard in the introduction, talk about the chord shapes, and strumming pattern you’ll need to play this song. I’ll also walk through a few simplified ways to tackle some of the more difficult sections. This was a fun song to learn, I hope this is helpful!
