Lesson notes

This beautiful song was released on Sarah McLachlan’s 1997 album Surfacing, which also included Building A Mystery and Angel.

Adia is a piano song but it transfers very nicely to the guitar. It is played in the key of Eb, which we get to with a capo at the first fret and thinking in D Major.

There are a few unusual chords for the key, along with a few inversions common in piano arrangements.

The lesson also includes some fills used in the verse and a short instrumental interlude.
