Frankie Goes To Hollywood, formed in 1980, was a British band, popular in the mid-1980s.
After ‘Relax’ and ‘Two Tribes’, they scored their third consecutive #1 UK single in 1984 with ‘The Power Of Love’, all taken from their debut album, ‘Welcome To The Pleasuredome’.
The lesson is somewhat based on live performances by vocalist Holly Johnson, which has a few differences from the original recording. It covers the progression and shows the chords in the key of Em, including a few shapes further up the neck.
We also take a look at the strumming which is, in my opinion, the most important aspect of the playing. It needs to be gentle and subtle in places and quite strong in others.
In order to play along with the original recording, one needs to capo the guitar at the first fret.
