Ed Sheeran - All of the stars

----------------------------------------------------------------------------- All Of The Stars - Ed Sheeran ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- I've watched a few live versions and this is how he actually plays it. As seen in: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhxiFy0A_3Q Capo on the 2nd fret, the whole song is based on a C#9 barre chord, the chords are: | F# | C# | A# | G# | E| 0 | x | 4 | 2 | A| x | 2 | x | x | D| 4 | 4 | 4 | 4 | G| 4 | 4 | 4 | 4 | B| x | x | x | x | E| x | x | x | x | My interpretation of the picking pattern: He starts every beat by picking the bass note of the chord twice then it goes like this: C E----------------- A B----------------- P G--------4-----4-- O D----------4------ A----------------- 2 E---0-0------0---- He also plays it like this: C E----------------- A B----------------- P G--------4-----4-- O D-----4----4------ A----------------- 2 E---0-------0----- The chord used for the example was the F#, it goes the same for every other chord in the song. There's also a little riff/run every second line of the verse (and I'm staring at the moon etc) C E------------------------- A B------------------------- P G-------4------4-------4-- O D------------------------- A------------------------- 2 E---4-4----2-2----0-0----- After that it goes back to the normal picking pattern. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Lyrics copied from max.wynne's version of this tab -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
F#It's just another nighC#t and I'm sA#mtaringG# at theF# moon C#I saw a shooting star and thought of youG#
F#I sang a lullabyC# By the waA#mtersG#ide F#and knew C# if you were here I'd G#sing to you
F#You're on the other sidC#e as the A#mskylG#ine spliF#ts in two C# miles away from sG#eeing you
F#But I can see the starC#s froA#mm AmeG#ricF#a I C#wondered do you see G#them too
So open your eC#yes and see the way our hoG#rizons meet and all of the liA#mghts will lead into the F#night with me And I know these sC#cars will bleed But both of our heG#arts believe All of these staA#mrs wilF#l dieC# as oneG#
F#I can hear your heart C# on theA#m radG#io F# They'C#re playing chasing cars and G#I thought of us F#Back to the timeC# you wereA#m lyinG#g neF#xt to me C# I looked across and G#fell in love
F#You saw I took your haC#nd Back through lA#mamp G#lit streetF#s and knewC# Everything led bacG#k to you
F#So can you see the stC#ars Over A#mAmsteG#rdaF#m C# you're the song my G#heart is beating too
So open your eC#yes and see the way our hoG#rizons meet and all of the liA#mghts will lead into the F#night with me And I know these sC#cars will bleed But both of our heG#arts believe All of these staA#mrs wilF#l dieC# as oneG#
And aC#ll you A#mknow C# F#and alG#l C# BuF#t I can see the stC#ars fromA#m AmeG#rica F#
