GT Live Sessions – More Than Words with Ali Ilagan

Ali prefers R&B, soul, and sentimental music loaded onto their CD player, and mentions Akon and South Border as his favorite artists. This next song is almost a combination of all of these–probably the best acoustic cover he did for us. A little trivia: just a few hours after it was posted in Youtube, it already gained a lot of good reviews and comments from our subscribers. Hopefully it will elicit the same reaction from you here in GT.
This video is an original Guitar Tutee cover.
G… Cadd9… Am7… C… C.D. G…

G Cadd9
Saying I love you is
Am7 C D G
not the words I want to hear from you
G Cadd9
It’s not that I want you
Am7 C D Em
not to say but if you only knew
Bm7 Am7
Ho-ow ea-sy
D G D/F# Em
It would be to show me how you feel
Bm7 Am7 D7 G7
More than words is all you have to do
G7 C
To make it real
C Cm G
Then you wouldn’t have to say
That you love me ‘cos
Am7 D7 G
I’d already know

G D/F# Em Bm C
What would you do if my heart was torn in two
C G/B Am7 D7 G
More than words to show you feel that your love for me is real
G D/F# Em7 Bm7 C
What would you say if I took those words away?
C G/B Am7
Then you couldn’t make things new
D7 G
Just by saying I love you

(Repeat intro x2)

Now that I’ve tried to
Talk to you and make you understand
All that you have to do is
Close your eyes and just reach out your hands
And touch me
Hold me close don’t ever let me go
More than words
Is all I ever needed you to show
Then you wouldn’t have to say
That you love me
Cos I’d All Ready Know

  5. yo man nice guitar a proffesional guitar instructor and ur really good…ali dude u have a swigging voice man but id recomend 4 u to listen to the song and sing it as it is dont change the refrain..the tune i mean.

  6. anonymous says:

    Why it isn’t here the song with anybody singing? I need it for a school project and I don’t know where I can find it.
    PS: The boy sing well, but in this time I need the one without singing. Sorry my bad english but I’m spanish and I’m not very used to practise it.

  7. dapat ung original na tune na lang.. kapanget naman ng pgkakanta nyan..

  8. Pauline says:

    in the original song it is tuned a half step lower
    in respect of the song i think you should redo this vid =]
    singing was good but the lyrics were jumbled like when i sing it
    [so dont worry i dont blame you]
    other than that everything was pretty much perfect
    make a vid with only the guitar


  10. hmm.just a comment to the have the voice but you sang the song sounded somewhat bad coz you’ve changed the original tune…wag gawing maarte ang pagkanta kasi hindi nmn un magandang pakinggan…

    to the one who played the guitar,you’re good…it sounded just like the original one..

    —i agree to those who said that they only wanted a video that will only include a guitar and the guitar player…

    (sorry kung may mali man sa grammar)

  11. I thought guitartutee was all about teaching starters on how to play music the right way.Why is the camera centered at the singer when we’re here to learn to play the guitar with your expert tutors?He cant even give justice to the song!!!As for the guitarist,you are the MAN bro!excellently played,delivered as if you were Nuno Bettencourt himself!Please post more videos of your guitar expertise ALONE!Ali…stick with the original tune dude!If you want to show the world your talent so bad, give the songs you sing JUSTICE!!!

  12. ganda sana ng song at ang galing ng naggigitara kaso pampasira ung nakanta… puro ka adlib pumangit 2loy

  13. pwede b wag ka pumapel ampangit ng boses mo nanginginig parang lindol na my aftershock!

  14. ,wow!ang ganda ng pag-GUITAR mo kuya…sana wala yung kumakanta..ang pangit kc….parang katulad na sana sa original..pero ung pagkanta ang pangit pakinggan nakakasira lng…..xori po..pero totoo tlga…

    ..kuya pwede po paki post nman po ung tabs nia?

  15. ung nag kakanta hindi marunong sumabay sa tamang tono. pre, ayusin mo pagkanta. ung nag guitar, hanep ka pre……

  16. pakita naman yung kamay…plzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  18. me too!i really want to learn this beautiful song,but only my timing on strumming is kind a hard to pick up!huhu…hope i learned thi song!

  19. ..uhhm, sayang lng ung galing nung guitarist.. ang arte kumanta nung vocalist.. nakaka’irita.. kung ako kumanta nian, di ganun kaganda pero di ganyan ka’arte.. pumanget ng sobra.. kaka’disapoint 2loy.. haaaaiiizzzzz.. be simple.. wag O.A pre.. panget mu.. nakakabadtrip kah.. kung pde lng kita sapakin ie,ginawa qu nah.. sorry for saying this.. but i don’t like it.. grrrr..


  21. malapit qh n syang makuha!.,…. ehehhehehehhe

  22. GOODNEWS: good guitarist and good vocalist, BADNEWS: the vocalist don’t know how to listen to rhythm made by the guitarist, so I feel the agony, the guitarist is rushing to come up with the tune of the vocalist, man your good at singin’ but the song “MORE THAN WORDS” is not for R&B and Soul. sorry for that.

  23. i dont like the singer sound very O.A en the vocalization worst what the fuck is that voice
