Lesson notes

Gary Barlow is an English singer-songwriter, musician and producer. He is best known as the leadsinger of the British pop group Take That, and is one of UK’s most successful songwriters, having written fourteen number one singles and twenty-four top 10 hits.

Forever Love, released in 1996, was the first single, taken from his debut solo album ‘Open Road’, and the first number one hit of his solo career.

In 2018 he celebrated the 21st anniversary of this album, by re-releasing it, including a new version of ‘Forever Love’.

This lesson is based on that version, which has been stripped down with only Barlow on piano.

It’s a fingerstyle arrangement in the key of G, with one chord out of the key. We break down a similar sounding intro, a few ways of fretting the chords, and how to fingerpick through the progression.
