Lesson notes

Kiss And Say Goodbye is a song by American R&B vocal group The Manhattans. It became a worldwide success and one of the biggest hits of 1976 and the 1970s.

This lesson teaches how to play the song in the key of A, where the guitar is capoed on the 1st fret.

The progression uses only three chords, the I, IV and V (A, D and E), with the exception of chord ii (Bm), which appears in the outro.

There are several details included, such as picking out bass notes and copying the kick of the drums when strumming, to give the accompaniment the same feel as the original.
