When I Was Your Man Guitar Chords – Bruno Mars

In this When I Was Your Man guitar chords lesson, I will show you all the chords to this great song by Bruno Mars.

The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E.

I will cover each section of the song in the order that each appears on the original recording.

Since this is a piano based song, this lesson demonstrates my arrangement of those chords for guitar. If you can play simple barre chords effectively, you won't have much of an issue playing this arrangement.

There are five sections total to learn. The intro, verse, pre-chorus, chorus and bridge. However, there is some slight variations between the chorus sections, and I will cover those as well in the lesson.

Have fun learning this beautiful song by Bruno Mars! Carl...

    First off, I love everything you do. You inspire me daily to keep working and get better! Now, I would typically put this in E-mail but it says yours isn’t available. Is there any way you could do a lesson on “Violets Tale” by Ren https://open.spotify.com/track/5KyuddPRTSgiwk7zGO1hvE?si=0bJ8kNMGRV6MGtCmzAv43Q

    Thanks again.
