Lesson notes

Spandau Ballet are an English new wave band formed in London in the late 1970s.

Through The Barricades is the title track of their 1986 album with the same name. It’s an acoustic ballad in the key of G, written by Gary Kemp.

This lesson covers the fast arpeggio style fingerpicking and the many chords and chord shapes.

We take a close look at all the parts, including the many details, which make the accompaniment of the song so beautiful.
