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
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.
