Guitar lesson for

2U

by David Guetta

Video lesson

Capo 4th fret

This is so you can use open standard chord shapes, and not be stuck in barre chord hell.

Chords needed

For the most part, you can use these three chords to play most of the song. Note, the E-minor voicing here is intentionally using only four of the 6 strings. See my video lesson for context here.

E |–––3––––2––––0–––
B |–––0––––3––––1–––
G |–––0––––2––––0–––
D |–––2––––0––––2–––
A |–––––––––––––3–––
E |–––––––––––––––––
      Em   D    C   

You’ll also need these chords for other parts of the song:

E |–––0––––2––––0––––2––––0––––3––––
B |–––0––––3––––1––––3––––1––––0––––
G |–––0––––2––––0––––4––––2––––0––––
D |–––2––––0––––2––––4––––2––––0––––
A |–––2–––––––––3––––2––––0––––2––––
E |–––0––––––––––––––––––––––––3––––
      Em   D    C    Bm   Am   G

Lyrics w/ chords

VERSE
           Em           D          C                  C  D  Em
        No limit in the sky that I won't fly for you...
                     Em          D           C                  C  D  Em
        No amount of tears in my eyes that I won't cry for you...  

PRE-CHORUS

        (Em)       D     Em     D      Em
        ......With every breath that I take
          D           C          D           Em
        I want you to share that air with me
        D          Em           D       C
        There's no promise that I won't keep
                     Am                D         Em
        I'll climb a mountain, there's none too steep

CHORUS
                G        C          Am         D             
        When it comes to you        There’s no crime
                   Bm          Em               Am   C
        Let’s take both of our souls        And intertwine

        (D)     G        C          Am       D
        When it comes to you        Don't be blind
                 Bm            Em             C     D  Em   C     D  Em
        Watch me speak from my heart, When it comes to you, comes to you

DROP

        Em  D  C ... C  D  Em
        Em  D  C ... C  D  Em

And so forth – repeat these progressions for each verse / pre-chorus / chorus / drop.
