Here's how to play The A Team by Ed Sheeran!

The chords are pretty easy in this one, but the strumming catches people out. We'll start with that in this tutorial, and go into it in detail so you can nail it like Ed!

You can get a printable version of the chord sheet I used for this tutorial here. This includes the strumming pattern in detail. All of this goes towards supporting this website!

Here's my full cover of this song, to help you get the strucutre and feel of the song.
