Can anyone tell me if there is a video to go with the "Somewhere only We know' from Justin's Pop Songbook? I have the book but cannot seem to find any video to go with it.

There's not currently a Justin video for that song, however I've just done a search for "Somewhere only we know guitar tutorial" over on YouTube, and there are already plenty tutorial videos for it by other guitarists.
I'd personally try the videos with the higher number of views first, as it usually means they're the better tutorials.

For reference, the complete justin song video list can be found at http://www.justinguitar.com/en/SB-001-JustinGuitarSongList.php

Rule the World
Okay I am just starting to learn this and paying attention to Justin's notes "Both Grips in One Song".

Can I just check I understand what he's suggesting (as it seems incredibly difficult which suggests I'm wrong).

So for the Verses he's suggesting using R6  high positions (so Bm 7th Fret, Em 12th Fret and then F#m would be 14th Fret) Playing Em and F#m at 12 and 14 seems next to impossible.

For the chorus he's suggesting using R5 positions (so Bm 2nd Fret, D 5th Fret, E 7th fret, A 5th Fret etc) which seems okay in terms of stretch.

Have I got this right?

Root on 6th string, I would take as playing open Em, F#m 2nd fret and Bm 7th fret. I'd would play the Bm using
5th string root.

Thanks Stitch.. that was my view as well... except Justin specifically talks about not using open Em in the supporting text ( generalkyadvisng not to mix open and barre chords - which I generally do).

Are you playing on acoustic?
If so, yes, this will be tough to impossible.
No probs on an electric - and it'll sound good if your intonation is right.
In fact it will tell you if your intonation is not right also.

Acoustic Close... so I’m right though Justin is going up the neck. Will give it a go on Electric... no way I can go that high on my acoustic
