This Whiteboard Request covers Ed Sheeran's smash hit "Shape of You". With only 4 repeating chords you can choose how simply you want to play this song. Aldrine shows you a very basic strumming pattern, and demonstrates how you can use chunks and mutes to make it more percussive. He also teaches you a fancier alternative fingerpicking pattern, as well as another picking pattern that can serve as an intro, or be played through out the song. With so many variations, this is the perfect song for jamming with your friends. Mix it up, experiment, and have fun with this super catchy tune.
