You - Romeo Santos | Part 1

Intro + Verse

Hey guys! The guitar tabs for You - Romeo Santos is the most requested song, so I decided for it to be the first song I write the guitar tabs for. Let me know what you guys think!

Step 1

This is the first 4 measures after the intro. (After the slowed down part with the vocals). It's a bit hard to hear in the cd version of the song, but you can hear it a bit better in the live version of the song. You can hear a preview of it below, and under that, the tabs for it. (This is how each #part is going to be written. If you have any suggestions, comment below!)

Step 2

Next part: If you want, you can actually just play this part twice instead of playing part #1. Both ways sound good.

Step 3

Now on to part 3 of Romeo Santo's You. I have a electric acoustic guitar, so it is a bit easier for me to play the arpeggio on the 15th fret. I've seen some players play this F Major the 10th fret instead. So in case you cannot get to the 15th fret on the D string, no worries. Just use the F Major arpeggio on the 10th fret.

Step 4

Part 4. It may be easier bar the 12th fret, and slide the whole hand while keeping form when doing the b string slide to the 15th fret. That way you can hit the next 3 notes quickly.

Step 5

This part of the Bachata tab can be made a bit difficult if you have a guitar that doesn't let you get to the 17th fret easily.

Step 6

This part uses 4 different chords, one right after the other.

Step 8

Make sure to use the full C maj chord at the 12th fret. So when you hit the B string on the 15th fret, you're actually doing that with your pinky.

Step 9

This is almost the same as part #7, except he switches up the last two notes. It is a small difference, but that it is there.

Step 10

Make sure to listen to the song to get the the timing right. The first three notes are played in rapid succession, while the last two are relatively slow.

Steps 11-15

All the way up to the break, #11-#15 are the same as #3-#6. So after #10, go back to #3 and play all the way to #6. This is where Romeo Santos breaks the song and finishes the first verse.
