Learn Believer Chords and Singing: Singing on the verses

The verses are made up of two parts. The first is generally slower than the second which acts as a pre-chorus.

Learn Believer Chords and Singing: Singing on Verse Parts 1

Verse 1 part 1 of “First things…à sea, oh-ooh”, verse 2 part 1 of “Third things…à oh-ooh”, verse 3 part 1 of “Last things ..à come, oh-ooh”:
Nothing particularly special about these paragraphs apart from being well seated on the tempo and supporting the words which are on time. Also pay close attention to the transition from chest voice to head voice on the “oh-oohs”. Get in the head to find the note of the first “oh”.

Be careful, these paragraphs are very fast and need to be worked in slow motion and gradually accelerated to the right speed.

It's the same as verse 1

Learn Believer Singing and Guitar: Believer Singing choruses

Due to the tempo of 125 BPM, the starts of each phrase in the song “Believer” begin on the third beat. This means that you have two beats before attacking on the third beat with the first syllable of the phrase.

This pattern applies to the first, second and fifth phrase of each chorus. It is therefore important to understand the timing to sing the song correctly.

Regarding the third phrase of each chorus, it is important to emphasize the legato (tied) between the two notes of the syllable “pain” and “rain”. This contributes to the flow and musicality of the song.

Furthermore, there are choirs which accompany the lead vocals on the choruses. These backing vocals are important to reinforce the epic nature of the song and give more depth to the chorus. To sing them, it is important to understand their melody and timing, and to integrate them harmoniously into the lead voice.

Learn Believer Chords and Singing: Believer Guitar Chords

When you play “Believer” on the guitar at the same time as you sing, chord placement is crucial. In this song, there are four chords used throughout the song: A minor, F major, E major, and G major. To simplify the guitar chords of Believer in order to obtain this result, we use a capo in box 1 to facilitate the chords.

If you have difficulty with the major FA chord, you can use the simplified version available on sites like Yooplay. It's also important to note that the first chord lasts two measures (eight beats), while the others last one measure (four beats).

It is important to play chords as whole notes (tied whole notes), meaning that each chord must be sustained for its entire duration. Pay attention to the repeat of the first chord on the third beat of the choruses (the first and last phrase of each chorus).

Finally, there is a stop at the end of the verse, at the third beat, where you will have to stop the sound with the palm of your hand to create an effect of silence.

Learn Believer Singing and Guitar: Combine Guitar Chords and Vocals on Believer

When you sing at the same time as you play the guitar, it's important to work on the synchronization between the two. Start by practicing slowly and gradually increase the speed as you feel more comfortable. You can also try playing the guitar while just singing the lyrics, without any melody, to focus on rhythm and timing.

Learn Believer Chords and Vocals: Believer guitar rhythm with vocals

If you want to learn how to play “Believer” on guitar by adding a rhythm, here are some useful tips. If you are already able to play the chords of the song while singing, then you can move on to the next step.

First, we're going to use a capo in fret 1 to simplify the chords. We will always have four chords to play, and if the F major gives you trouble with the barre, you can use the simplified version.

Then, for the rhythm, you have to follow a basic pattern throughout the song. Here's how it happens:

Learn Believer Chords and Singing: Believer rhythm guitar

The rhythm is almost always the same, you must follow a basic pattern throughout the song:
1           2        3         4
LOW – LOW – LOW – LOW-HIGH…..

We therefore have 3 quarter notes on beats 1, 2 and 3 and 1 dotted eighth note and a sixteenth note on the 4th beat.

Learn Believer Chords and Vocals: The Guitar Rhythm of the Chorus

Pay attention to the repetition of the first chord on the third beat of the choruses (the first the last phrase of each chorus).
So we have 1 rest on beat 1 and a rest on beat 2. We have a downward stroke on beat 3, nothing on beat 4 itself (so we have a quarter note tied with a dotted eighth note) and a double eighth note just behind:
1           2        3         4
x x LOW (NOTHING)-HIGH
The X corresponds to the sound stopped with the palm of your hand holding the pick.

Learn Believer Chords and Vocals: Stopping the Sound with the Palm of Your Hand on the Guitar

To make the song “Believer” more dynamic and interesting to listen to, it is important to take into account pauses and stops in sound. There are two key moments in the song where you will have to stop the sound with the palm of your hand.

The first stop occurs at the end of verse 3, on the third beat. You will have to stop the sound of your guitar by placing the palm of your hand on the strings, while keeping your fingers in place on the frets. This pause will create a break in the song and give an effect of surprise.

The second stop occurs at the very end of the song, on the third beat of the last chord. It is important to mark this pause well, because it closes the song and gives a sense of finality. Once again, you'll have to stop the sound with the palm of your hand to get the desired effect.
