Ed Sheeran's "I See Fire"




Ed Sheeran's popularity and critical acclaim is often credited, in part, to his collaboration with Taylor Swift, providing vocals on the song "Everything Has Changed." He later went on to tour with Swift and their collaoration helped Swift's album win a grammy nomination in 2014. Sheeran is also known for his writing contributions to the band One Direction.

The song "I See Fire" was featured in the end credits of the The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Sheeran's live performances tend to feature looping of parts. Here is a great look at how he is able to perform this piece solo. Our arrangment borrows from some of this performance some of the reptition in guitar parts as well as using the acoustic guitar to provide percussion. In the spirit of a loop, you will notice that that each guitar tends to come in one at a time and gradually.

*Please take note of whether or not your part requires a capo.
