About the song

Ed Sheeran wrote this song for his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn. It is a slow romantic ballad.

Here is Timo’s advice on how to play this song.

Ed Sheeran songs are always good for my students because it is beautiful music and not too complicated. I took “Perfect” because it is a nice slow 6/8 song where I can show some techniques, like hammer-on, pull-off, slides and grace notes and do a slow musical structure.

Just try to play this arrangement in the 1st position (except for the bridge after the chorus) and always keep the 6/8 bar in mind. You should count with emphasis on 1 and 4 if you have problems with the measure. Don’t play it too fast.

You will need a capo on the first fret to play it in the same tonality than the one used by Timo.
