It sounds spot on to me!! As soon as I heard her single I thought "omg maybe cristy♥twilight has put a tab up on Ultimate guitars!" :D (Btw this is costadancer - I made a new account, dunno if you remember me LOL)

Although the lyrics in the first verse aren't quite right I don't think! This "Like the colors and arms so bright, Just before they lose it all" should be... "Like the colors in autumn, so bright just before they lose it all"

@melissarose- Yes I remember costadancer! Ha ha, it wouldn't be right if I didn't screw up the lyrics!! I hurry so fast to get it on here and getting the chords right that lyrics come last:( I am updating! I can pick out chords and keys but not words obviously!!

I agree with IluvguitarXD, if you play it with capo on the 3th it sounds better.
but THANKS!

everything is gr8, but the capo should be on 2 though... other that , 10 stars from me!!!

I just watched Taylor play this on youtube and it's definitely capo 4:) With these same chords (but her G is [230010], not sure what it's called, G7 or a Gsus of sorts?)

So, if the capo sounds better on 2 or 3 like some have said, then play it that way! Lol! Whatever sounds good to you!

(But I'm not changing it, this is how Taylor plays it:))

Taylor Swift plays it with CAPO 3 not 4, live performances i've seen are on 3
October 25 2012, 04:56 pm by MoBryso |
hey for ur tab i think the 3rd time the 2nd string should be open note, not on 1st fret :)

I agree with MoBryso...I thought the tab should be open on the last note...it sounds good either way though..but other than that amazing tab- I'm glad you tab so many T Swift songs! Love em!

I think the chord you're looking for in the intro is a G barre chord. So the plucking would be...

e|---------------|
B|-------3-------|
G|-----4---------|
D|---5-----------|
A|---------------|
E|---------------|
January 8 2013, 11:47 pm by deadestined |
she plays G like this

e|---------------|
B|-------1-------|
G|---------------|
D|---------------|
A|-------2-------|
E|-------3-------|
January 21 2013, 05:38 pm by cookiemomaallie |
I think the last chord in the intro might be a D.

My dad listens to this whole song, shakes his head, and says, "The most interesting man in the world."

Great tab
May 12 2013, 06:38 pm by krista.borling |
Perfect! It's also kinda cool to pick the G chord with the base note then strings 3 and 2! Love this! Thanks!
May 19 2013, 08:12 pm by kelseygoff193 |

May 27 2013, 07:08 am by hello |
Awesome tune! ;)

I need help with the strumming PLEASEEE
July 29 2013, 05:40 pm by DarlaJo |
For the first verse you pick like the intro. For the second verse you do down strumming palm mutes(if that makes sense), you can do that for the first verse too if you don't want to pick. For the choruses it's DDUUDU. And for the bridge it's just down strums.
September 3 2013, 07:41 am by VerifiClaytion |
For the intro do

e|--------0--------0-------0-|
B|------2--------5-------4---|
G|----2--------6-------4-----|
D|---------------------------|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|
September 26 2013, 08:17 pm by 1474888 |
the chords to the intro are A, E, D then back to A

November 12 2013, 05:57 pm by catking99 |
I think the lyrics are "wishing you'd never found out that love could be that strong." Otherwise perfect!
November 14 2013, 02:25 pm by cristy♥twilight |
Lol, I never saw this! Thank you? Lol!
November 14 2013, 02:30 pm by cristy♥twilight |
Thanks cat! I checked on her website and you're right (just no 'd on the you.) You're my little "lyrics cleaner upper" lol! Off to update....

What is the strumming pattern for the whole song? Is it the same as the intro? Or am I completely missing lol. I'm new at this so I miss a lot haha(: Thanks!!(:
January 21 2014, 11:40 am by pavlin.rusev |

January 27 2014, 03:27 pm by Britcm |
THIS IS AWSOME!!
January 28 2014, 08:39 pm by paytonclare |
These are THE BEST chords for Red. I love playing this so much!! THANK YOU!
July 1 2014, 07:05 pm by jaymi587 |
I think the capo should be on the 3rd fret, other than that it's pretty good
July 1 2014, 09:01 pm by cristy♥twilight |
Hi :) To play directly along with the recorded track it is capo on the 4th fret. If you're listening to it from YouTube the song may be 'pitched' or any live versions may be different as well (or your tuning may not be in standard.) But for the CD- capo 4. But just play it how you want to and have fun!! :) :) :)
