I read your comment and conciderd it man, but i gotta say i don't agree. Are you listening to a live version? Or a cover? Since this chord sheet is meant to be with the studio recording with Maroon 5.

I think the Chord Progression is like this- After playing yours and singing along with it on the piano and guitar.

Verse:
C - Am - F - G

Pre-Chorus
Am - F - C - G

Chorus:
Same as Verse

I found it weird that your 4-chord progressions did not end in a V (in this case G) which comes back to the tonic(Key).

actually dude it does end a V. The Key is B since E is major, F# is major the next whole step has to be the relative minor to the key in this case the relative minor is Ab, move that up 3 half-steps to figure out the Major key it's and it's the key of B.

In the key of B the V is F# so my 4-chord progression does end in a V

Here's my progression in scale degrees.

Key: B

_IV - I - vi - V
(E) (B) (Ab) (F#)

Also i don't hear the progression of the chords change throughout the song. I hear different beats and patterns of the arpeggios on the pianos though.

I hope this help! :)

@pmanansala08 well i was gonna comment and tell you what i thought in response to your comment but Eddy said everything i was going to haha

he's right though the key of the song is in B (or G relative to capo) and it does end in a V chord. It looks like you thought the key of the song was in E.

as far as i hear the chord progression remains a IV I vi V (4, 1, 6, 5) throughout the whole song.

I know its not in the actual song, but i think it sounds nice to end on a G.
So the very last word would be

C G
Payphone

With one strum on each chord.

capo on 4th is correct although this can be changed depending what personal vocal preference you want to put on the cover it doesnt have to remain in the same key :)

G as 3x0233 sounds nice

October 18 2012, 09:44 pm by ESSWHAT |
Nice, but i'd rather fix the spelling on the line "one more ****en love song i'll be sick"
it is "one more ****ing love song i'll be sick"

No, you just play the root chords, so its C G Em D. There is nothing fancy about the chords

May 27 2013, 09:30 am by harrilynch |

-2   June 4 2013, 05:37 pm by beniboi98 |
Just figure it out yourself by listening to the drum beat - sheesh, I hate it when newbs to guitar spoil the comments asking for the "strum pattern"
November 20 2013, 10:53 am by danrobben |
I think Dsus4 shout be D just but its okey whit Dsus4
February 26 2014, 04:04 pm by Eirien |
lol I tried that but it was still too high so I just keep the capo on 4 and sing an octave lower.
