Shawn Mendes- Stitches 

Quick Easy Lesson by Adi Venkatesh!

Credits to Lets Play Guitar (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBl5sCJVHmnj_TZOYubd5cg)
for the strumming pattern


Strumming pattern for Verse 1: 

Am: A ^^^
G:  G ^^^
C:  C ^^^
F:  F ^^^

This basically means you play the root note of each chord, followed by three upstrokes, playing each chord.


Strumming Pattern for Pre Chorus: 

Same as Verse 1

F:   F ^^^
G:   G ^^^
Am:  A ^^^
Am:  A ^^^


Strumming Pattern for Chorus:

Am: v^x^v^x^
G:  v^x^v^x^
C:  v^x^v^x^
F:  v^x^v^x^


This basically means for each chord in the chorus you do an upstroke followed by a downstroke
and then a string slap, followed by an upstroke, downstroke, upstroke, string slap, and finally an 
upstroke, and then switch chords and continue the same pattern. 

If you need help understanding this or following the tempo, check out this link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRn1OS3XZUk

Verse 2 Strumming Pattern:

Am: vvvvvvvv
G:  vvvvvvvv
C:  vvvvvvvv
F:  vvvvvvvv

Make sure you palmmute all of this.

This basically means you play continuous downstrokes until the chord changes, listen to the song to 
get a feel on how many downstrokes feels right for you to keep in time with Shawn's guitar.  

Pre Chorus 2 Strumming Pattern: 

F: vvvvvvvv
G: vvvvvvvv
Am: vvvvvvvv
Am: vvvvvvvv

Same pattern as Verse 2.

Repeat Chorus Strumming Pattern above for chorus 2.

Bridge Strumming Pattern:

Am: vvvvvvvv
G:  vvvvvvvv
C:  vvvvvvvv
F:  vvvvvvvv

Make sure you palmmute all of this.

Repeat chorus strumming pattern till the end of the song!

And those are the strumming patterns! 



(Verse 1):
 Am             G               C        F
I thought that I've been hurt before
    Am              G                 C      F
But no one's ever left me quite this sore
 Am              G             C     F
Your words cut deeper than a knife
      Am                G                  C         F
Now I need someone to breathe me back to life

(Pre-Chorus):
 F                       G 
Got a feeling that I'm going under
 Am
But I know that I'll make it out alive
 F                G
If I quit calling you my lover
Am
Move on
----------
(Chorus):
              Am                   G
You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
           C                    F
I'm shaking, falling onto my knees
             Am                 G
And now that I'm without your kisses
 F                 C
I'll be needing stitches
       Am           G
I'm tripping over myself,
             C                   F
I'm aching begging you to come help
       Am                      G
And now that I'm without your kisses
   F                C
I'll be needing stitches
-----------
(Verse 2):
  Am         G               C     F
Just like a moth drawn to a flame
          Am             G                 C          F
Oh, you lured me in, I couldn't sense the pain
 Am           G                C           F
Your bitter heart cold to the touch
               Am          G
Now I'm gonna reap what I sow
                C            F
I'm left seeing red on my own

(Pre-Chorus 2):
 F                       G 
Got a feeling that I'm going under
 Am
But I know that I'll make it out alive
 F                G
If I quit calling you my lover
Am
Move on
---------
(Chorus):
              Am                   G
You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
           C                    F
I'm shaking, falling onto my knees
             Am                 G
And now that I'm without your kisses
 F                 C
I'll be needing stitches
       Am           G
I'm tripping over myself,
             C                   F
I'm aching begging you to come help
       Am                      G
And now that I'm without your kisses
        F              C
I'll be needing stitches
---------
(Bridge):
 Am             
Needle and the thread,
       G                  
Gotta get you out of my head
 C              
Needle and the thread,
       F         
Gonna wind up dead    (X3)

---------
(Chorus):
              Am                   G
You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
           C                    F
I'm shaking, falling onto my knees
             Am                 G
And now that I'm without your kisses
 F                 C
I'll be needing stitches

----------

             Am                 G
And now that I'm without your kisses
 F                 C                           x2
I'll be needing stitches
