Rewind | Chords + Lyrics (capo 2)


Intro

| Csus2 (C) | Csus2 (C) | Fsus2/C (F/C) | Fsus2/C (F/C) |

Verse 1

||: Csus2 (C) | Csus2 (C) | Fsus2/C (F/C) | Fsus2/C (F/C) :||
Picking up the pieces, of the wreck you went and left.
And I’m dealing with dilemmas, in my now so-stressful life.
And I’m drinking stronger spirits, I made my home here on the floor,
and I’m losing all ambition and goals.

Bridge 1

| E | Dm | E | Dm |
And I’m going all out, and I’m thinking you’re just as bad.

Chorus 1

| C | G | Am | F/C |
No sleeping at night, but I’m going from bar to bar.
| C | G | Am | F/C |
Why can’t we just rewind? Why can’t we just rewind? Why can’t we just rewind?

Verse 2

||: Csus2 (C) | Csus2 (C) | Fsus2/C (F/C) | Fsus2/C (F/C) :||
Oh remember at 16, oh the crazy drunken night we had.
When I kissed you in the hallway, then I took you straight to bed.

Bridge 2

| E | Dm | E | Dm |
Oh two years on, and I’m still that same boy and I’m.

Chorus 2

||: C | G | Am | F/C :||
Not sleeping at night, but I’m going from bar to bar.
Why can’t we just rewind? Why can’t we just rewind? Why can’t we just rewind?
Not sleeping at night, but I’m going from bar to bar.
Why can’t we just rewind? Why can’t we just rewind? Why can’t we just rewind?

Middle 8

| Dm | E | Am Am/G | Am/F Am/E |
You might blame it on me, but you insisted that we fall.
| Dm | E | G | G |
Wiped your hands off me, and said you needed more, more, more.

Chorus 3 (breakdown)

| C | G5 | Am | F/C |
I’m not sleeping at night, but I’m going from bar to bar.
| C | G | Am | F/C |
Why can’t we just rewind? Why can’t we just rewind? Why can’t we just rewind?

Chorus 4

||: C | G | Am | F/C :||
Not sleeping at night, but I’m going from bar to bar.
Why can’t we just rewind? Why can’t we just rewind? Why can’t we just rewind?

Outro

||: C | G | Am | F/C :|| C |
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Can’t we just rewind?

Rewind Chords: Learn the progressions


Rewind 8 step by step guitar lessons

The original recording of Paolo Nutini‘s Rewind is played in the key of C (see chords and lyrics above).

When I recorded Spytunes’ version, this was too low for my female singer, so I added a capo on fret 2, making it in the key of D.

I felt this was perfectly fine as all you have to do is remove the capo and you’ll play it just like Paolo does.

What I didn’t expect was that doing this gave me a great chance to create a 2nd guitar part, in the key of D, without a capo.

In the videos at the top of this page, you can see how I first “play in C” with the capo, then in the 2nd video without a capo, in D. Later on in the course, we also put the capo on fret 5, creating yet another guitar part, now thinking in the key of A.

You can find all these versions in the playlist at the top of the page.

Creating these 2nd guitar parts means that you, me and the singer can play Rewind together, like an acoustic trio.

Before we get to that, we learn the first part which you can play on your own, just like I do with the singer at the top of this page.

It’s not actually the chords that are difficult, it’s the strumming so you’ll get TAB with play-along loops. Here are the first two chords C and F/C with those sus2 chords added and taken away.

You can play along with the TAB loop above to get a taste of what it’s like learning guitar with Spytunes.

Rewind chords and TAB example 1 verse.

In the course, we learn Rewind like this, bar by bar using play-along loops and video lessons where I talk you through the strumming techniques.

We also work on some strumming exercises, these will help you with playing Rewind’s intricate rhythms.

This is followed by playing the complete song with a singer before we start developing 2nd guitar parts without a capo, thinking in D, then with a capo on fret 5, thinking in A.

After 8 guitar lessons (or steps), you, me, and the singer can play Rewind together and you will have learned how to create guitar parts by putting the CAGED system to work using a capo.

Rewind is a single from Paolo Nutini’s debut album!

A lot of the time, the debut album from an artist is the most interesting. Partly, they’ve had years to write it, whereas the follow-up needs to happen quickly if the first did well.

But also, if given free rein, the debut is made without knowing how all this stuff works, the artist is just writing the best songs they can, doing it all without any preconceived ideas.

In the case of Paolo Nutini’s debut album, These Streets (2006), the management and label could clearly tell Paolo had a great voice and wrote what sounded like great songs but nobody knows for certain if it’s great until it’s finished.

I actually think his debut is underestimated, there are at least five genuinely fantastic tunes on this album in the title track These Streets, Last Request, New Shoes, Jenny Don’t Be Hasty, and of course, Rewind.

Paolo may have gotten even better as a singer since then. The production may be more credible as well but I honestly don’t think he’s ever written songs as pure as what we found on that debut album.

I toured with Paolo when he had just released his second album, Sunny Side Up (2009), which does sound better sonically, and collectively he now had a great bunch of tunes.

However, the best reaction from the crowd was always when he sang These Streets on his own with just one guitar, it was so pure, and all the women went nuts, always a good indication!
