Lesson notes

Johnny Logan is a singer-songwriter from Ireland. He is known as being the only performer to have won the Eurovision Song Contest twice, in 1980 and 1987. He also composed the winning song in 1992.

In this lesson we take a look at his self composed song Hold Me Now, a gorgeous love ballad, earning his second win in 1987.

The original was recorded in the key of F, and goes up a whole step to G in the final chorus. This is not easy on the guitar, so I chose the key of C and D instead (Capo V). Even then it has its challenges. 

We break down the chords, strumming and go through the arrangement with all its little details.
