How To Play Lego House By Ed Sheeran On Guitar

I’m a big Ed Sheeran fan and recently I worked out the chords to his song Lego House. In this lesson I’ll show you how to play the song and you’ll be able to access the chord chart and chord diagrams.

Ed Sheeran – Lego House – Basic Guitar Chord Shapes

How to play Lego House By Ed Sheeran on GuitarI love the simplicity of Lego House. When Ed Sheeran plays it, he’s in the key of B major, and uses one basic chord shape throughout the song.

He moves the bass note around to give different chord tones, but his third and fourth fingers stay in the same place, on the same fret.

The basic chords are shown in the diagram to the left. If you prefer, you can download the pdf of the chord shapes from this link – Lego House Guitar Chords – Ed Sheeran

The B chord shown on the top left of the chord sheet is the main chord.  He moves his 1st and 2nd fingers to different places on the E and A strings to change the chord.

The verse chord progression goes like this:

|B        |B   B/F#|G#m    |G#m  E  |

In this progression the B/F# is a passing chord – the first B is played for 1 1/2 bars and the F# is used for beats 3 and 4 of the 2nd bar.

The Chorus chords use the same concept, but with different passing notes.

The chorus goes:
|B       |B   B/C# |G#m      |G#m B   |F#     |F#  F#/G#|E       |E   F#  |

There is a Bridge which goes G#m to F# to E  then F# to E before  finishing on the F#.

I mention in the video, when Ed Sheeran goes back to the chorus for the last couple of times, he tends to play full chords to build the intensity of the song.

Here’s the video lesson to show you how I play Lego House by Ed Sheeran on Guitar.

I think I love you better now, now

I’m gonna paint you by numbers
and colour you in
if things go right we can frame it, and put you on a wall

And it’s so hard to say it but I’ve been here before
and I will surrender up my heart

and if you’re broken then I will mend ya
and keep you sheltered from the storm that’s raging on, now

I’m out of touch, I’m out of love

And out of all these things I’ve done
I think I love you better now

I’m out of touch, I’m out of love
I’ll pick you up when you’re getting down
and out of all these things I’ve done
I will love you better now
