Charlie Puth’s new single, “We Don’t Talk Anymore” (ft. Selena Gomez) contains a upper-intermediate to lower-advanced guitar part that will keep your concentration on high alert!
Charlie Puth’s R&B burner, “We Don’t Talk Anymore” consists of two separate but similar chord progressions, However, beware as one little slip can cause a bit of a mess while trying to keep up with its fast tempo. This tutorial is in the original key. There is no capo used.
Chord Progression 1 (4 measures)
A Major – B Major – C#minor – G#minor.
Chord Progression 2 (4 measures)
A Major – B Major – C#minor – C#minor.
*For clarity’s sake on this tutorial let’s call these sections A and B, which is clearly marked on the score.
The entire song is played arpeggio style with a fast 1/16th-note texture and it never strays from these two sections. If you are not clear on the arpeggio style of playing. The video tutorial will help you tremendously. I go to great lengths to explain and demonstrate exactly what to do.
The difficulty with playing “We Don’t Talk Anymore” will lie in the speed at which the parts are played. The uptempo R&B vibe will have you gasping for air if you don’t prepare slowly and evenly for a couple days at least.
It will be easier to play this song using finger style technique on an acoustic guitar. Using a pick will require extreme accuracy for the entirety of the song (3:37). If you are up for it, God bless you!
Here is the structure of the song:
The intro is: A B
- Charlie’s Verse is: A A
- Charlie’s Pre-Chorus is: A B
