How to Arrange Ed Sheeran's 'Afterglow' FROM SCRATCH on Fingerstyle Guitar!

A step-by-step walkthrough of my unique approach to arranging Ed Sheeran's 'Afterglow' on acoustic fingerstyle guitar. I start from scratch and take you through my every thought process, putting together a fingerstyle arrangement that you can then add your own personal touch to it.

Note: this walkthrough is intended for you to learn the TECHNIQUES and CONCEPTS of arranging a fingerstyle guitar song, NOT for you to copy this arrangement 100%! If I wanted to teach you an arrangement 100%, I would just write out a tab. But that would not improve you musicianship, or enable you to arrange your other favourite songs using this very technique I use here.

If you're unfamiliar with some of the music concepts used, I have lots more guitar lesson videos on my channel that you can learn from. Do check them out!
