I’ve had a LOT of requests to teach this song, and it’s not hard to see why.

“Someone You Loved” is a huge hit by Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi. It reached the #1 spot in the US, UK, Canada, and Ireland.

Lewis Capaldi says this song took him 6 months to write and complete, and that he was “bashing his head” against a wall to come up with the melodies.

Fortunately for you, it won’t take 6 months to learn, because it’s a really simple song to play on the piano.

The chord progression is the familiar 1-5-6-4. If you’re not sure what that is, check out this lesson:

The main riff is beautiful and is really just a shell of a 2nd inversion chord. To learn more about chords and their inversions, check out our FREE Chord Hacks series:

The original song is in the key of Db major. But we’re going to bump it up a half-step to D just to make it even easier to play.

– The chords – 0:32
– The intro riff – 0:53
– A basic accompaniment – 1:51
– The chorus – 3:00
– The bridge (a NEW chord) – 3:46

This song is great because you can make it as simple or complicated as you like. The original version just repeats the intro riff throughout the song, an octave lower than the intro.

So play around with it and have some fun!
