(Everything I Do) I Do It For You Analysis + TAB

Search the internet for (Everything I Do) I Do It For You chords and you’ll see most results suggesting you should play standard open-position chords in the key of C, putting a capo on fret 1.

A capo on fret 1 is always awkward anyway, but when it comes to (Everything I Do) I Do It For You’s chords, it’s not just awkward, it sounds wrong.

Clearly, playing in the key of Db and trying to fit in all those extensions you saw above is very difficult, on the acoustic maybe even impossible so members look at an alternative, using a capo on fret 4, thinking in A.

All of a sudden, you’ll now sound like the original piano part and all falls into place. Let’s compare, here’s the verse in the key of Db.

| Db (I) (Dbadd4) | Dbsus2 | Gb (IV) | Ab/Eb (V) |
| Db (Dbadd4) | Dbsus2 | Gb | Absus4 Ab/Eb |

In the key of A, it seems so much easier!

A (I) (Aadd4) | Asus2 | D5 (IV) | E/B (V) |
A (Aadd4) | Asus2 | D5 | Esus4 E/B |
