Lesson notes

Katy Perry is an American singer-songwriter who rose to fame in 2008 with the release of her 2nd album ‘One of The boys’.

One of its tracks is Thinking Of You and this lesson shows how Perry plays it on the guitar, whether or not she’s performing it by herself or with a band.

The arrangement is done in the key of E, and uses only a few shapes, while leaving the two top strings open with pretty much every chord. We also take a look at the main feel of the strumming, which emphasizes several upstrokes.
