Somebody’s Guitar Chords with Capo & Strumming – Enrique Iglesias

Some songs never age and always remain evergreen. No matter when it was released, but these songs continue to mesmerise us. Somebody’s me by Enrique Iglesias is one such enchanting number. Hailing from the genre of pop, this melody was written by Enrique himself along with John Shanks and Kara DioGuardi. From the album Insomniac, this romantic chartbuster has a different emotion of its own. The symphony was created by just the guitars and the drums and maybe that is why it’s a soulful and serenading rendition. The guitar chords have a novice level of difficulty and are predominantly played in the G scale. The progression is subtle and harmonious. The song can also be covered easily on the piano as the notations are simple. Amateurs can pick up the chords effortlessly. The song has a very soothing feeling with the moderate tempo and the signature 4/4 beats with a not so slow rhythm.
