Photograph tab by Ed Sheeran

The guitar tabs and chords below are for the song “Photograph” by Ed Sheeran which you can find on his second album simply called “X”.

It is fun and personal to see.

Photograph starts with strums of the acoustic guitar, the guitar chord progression, as you can see below, is very common in modern pop music. The lyrics deals with a long-distance relationship Sheeran once had with a Scottish singer called Nina Nesbitt.
