Lesson notes

I Started A Joke and To Love Somebody are two of the most well known songs written and recorded by the British group the Bee Gees.

This lesson takes a look at both songs in standard tuning as well as open D-Tuning, the latter being used by Barry Gibb throughout his whole guitar playing life.

It also shows how to incorporate the little bassline in the intro of I Started A Joke and the melodic fill in the intro of To Love Somebody.

Both songs are in guitar friendly keys, respectively G and A and consist of mostly open chords. They should be very playable in both tunings.
