Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Ed Sheeran - Wake Me Up

Standard tuning - Capo 1st fret
Half-step down tuning (originally played like that) - Capo 2nd fret
With the capo, I recommend to use whatever fits your voice the best, 
I personally prefer playing this song in standard tuning with no capo.

No strumming ! Just fingerpicking. Only one „pick“ at a time.

G - [ 3 x x 0 3 3 ]
C - [ x 3 x 0 1 0 ]
Dadd9(add4) /later marked as D9 only, although it’s not a D9/  - [ x 5 x 0 3 0 ]


Intro: G     C     D9     C


Note: In this first verse, after every C chord I play I like to play an open B 
string then hammer on the first fret and then pull off.

Something like this: e||-----------||
                     B||---0h1p0---||
                     G||-----------||
                     D||-----------||
                     A||-----------||
                     E||-----------||

It adds some spirit, but to my ears it only fits in this first verse of the song.



         G                      C
I should ink my skin, with your name.
 
    G                                       C
And take my passport out again, and just replace it.

            G 
See I could do without a tan on my left hand,
 
                                C
where my fourth finger meets my knuckle.

             G                                   C 
And I should run you a hot bath, fill it up with bubbles.
 


       
            C                  D9
Cause maybe your loveable, and maybe your my snowflake,

         G                   
and your eyes turn from green to grey, 

                   C
in the winter I'll hold you in a cold place.

    C
And you should never cut your hair, 

        D9               G                 C
cause I love the way you flick it off your shoulder, (mmmm)

    C                             D9                        G     C
And you will never know, just how beautiful you are to me,

    C                               D9      G           
but maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up.
 



G
And Would you ever feel guilty? If you did the same to me.

C                               D9                                
Would you make me a cup of tea, to open my eyes in the right way
 
G                                                               
And I know you love shrek, 'cause we've watched it twelve times.

C                              D9                         G
But, maybe you're hoping for a fairy-tale to, but if your DVD breaks today,
 
                         C                                   D9
You should of got a VCR, because I've never owned a blueray, true say.
 
         G
And I've always been shit at computer games, and your brother always beats me,

         C                                        D9
And if I lost, i'd go across and chuck all the controllers at the tv, and

                    G
then you'd laugh at me,and be asking me, if I'm going to be home next week,
                        
                        C
and then you'd lie with me, until I fall asleep, 

                  D9
and flutter an eyelash on my cheek, between the sheets.
 


C                                 D9                       G   C
And you will never know, just how beautiful you are to me,

    C                               D9      G           
but maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up.
 


G
And I think you hate the smell of smoke,  you always try get me to stop,

C                          D9  
You drink as much as me, and I get drunk alot,
 
     G                          G
So I take you to the beach, and walk along the sand,

         C                                D9
And I'll make you a heart pendant, with a pebble held in my hand.
 
         G                                  
And I'll carve it like a necklace, so the heart falls where your chest is,

          C                                            D9
And now a piece of me, is a piece of the beach, and it falls just where it

                       G
needs to be, and rests peacefully, you just need to breathe,
 
                         C                  D9
to feel my heart against yours now, against yours now.



Strumming starts here. No strumming up the strings, only down. 
The last line of this last verse is fingerpicked again.



C                               D9      Em     G
Maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up.

C                               D9      Em     G
Maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up.

C                              D9      G 
Maybe I fell in love, when you woke me up.
