Lesson notes

Fading Like A Flower (Every Time You Leave) is a ballad by the Swedish duo Roxette, released as the second single from their third studio album ‘Joyride’ (1991).

This lesson is entirely based on how Roxette performed it during their MTV Unplugged show.

We take a look at all the chords, mainly in the key of F and how to randomly fingerpick through the song. One could of course also use a pick.

The most important aspects are the ability to fill up the measures, and to somewhat accentuate the ‘and of beat 2’, which is when many chord changes appear.
