Licks and Riffs: Adele - Someone Like You  
 

Licks & Riffs : Adele - Someone Like You

Report Error



Adele builds a beautiful and moving song over the simplest of chord patterns. First take a simple argeggio figure on A major, then move the lower most note of the pattern down one step to G#

Adele




Then continue, down one step to G# then again to F#, ending finally on a D major chord:

The chords that result are actually: A, C#m, F#m7, D







The chorus also has a very standard progression I- V-VI-IV or A, E, F#m, D. Indeed, this is the progression used in the famous Axis of Awesome Four chord video which shows just how many songs are made using this progression!
