Waiting For A Girl Like You is a Platinum-certified 1981 power ballad by the British-American band Foreigner. It was the second single from their album ‘4’ and has become one of the band’s most famous songs worldwide.
This lesson takes a look at an acoustic version as occasionally performed by Foreigner in more recent years.
It covers the progression, the strumming and a possible way to copy the distinctive synthesizer theme as acoustically done on a mandolin by guitar player Bruce Watson.
A tab for how to play it as performed on the original recording by the then-little-known Thomas Dolby is included.
