Ariana Grande - Best Mistake Guitar Chords

Ariana Grande

dance pop, pop, post-teen pop

Song versions: 1 2 3 4 5
Chords: Fsus, F#/Gb, F
No Capo Needed- All Barre Chords

These chords are slightly different than other versions but it’s easier to pick up if you can barre, 
and I think the D#m/Ebm (668876), with the A#m/Bbm (688666) sound better, and go better with the 
song than the Gm (466444) in the other versions.

Notes:

In case you want to sound more like the original you could replace the F after the A#m/Bbm with an A#m7 
shape barred on 1 (xx3221). But only replace the F chord after the A#m/Bbm- don't replace the F at the end
 of the sequence with anything.

Also If you are feeling adventurous/dexterous and don’t feel like barring all the way up to 6th fret you 
could try replacing the D#m/Ebm (668876)with a Dm shape barred on 1 (x11342) then 
replace the 6th fret A#m/Bbm with the normal one on the first fret, then right into the F#/Gb etc…

Lastly if you can't manage the Fsus (133311) then you can skip it straight to the F and it will basically
 sound the same

[Verse 2: Big Sean]
  A#m/Bbm
I guess time's wasting
F
Tick tocking, lip locking
    D#m/Ebm                   A#m/Bbm
How can we keep the feelings fresh?

How do we zip lock it?
          F#/Gb
Wear your heart up on your sleeve

So watch out for pick pockets
  Fsus
I guess to go the distance
F
We might need to pit stop it
     A#m/Bbm
Hold up
                     F
I know love can be a beach with no shore
       D#m/Ebm                          A#m/Bbm
I done count to ten, lost my temper and went back to four
           F#/Gb
I know sometimes it's hard to realize I'm the man that you need
        Fsus
I had a dream we branched out

And we the oddest couple only human
       F
Except you, you a goddess
     D#m/Ebm                    A#m/Bbm
Only lying to you when I lie it down just being honest
         F#/Gb
When you start as friends it's hard to say you're never going back
       Fsus                     F
If I'm not the one then I'm the best mistake you ever had
