Lesson notes

Coming Around Again is a song by American singer-songwriter Carly Simon, written for the film Heartburn (1986) and later from the album of the same name (1987). Released as a single in 1986, it became one of Simon’s biggest hits.

The song starts in the key of C, moving from chord I, to vi, to IV and back to I. In the chorus it changes to the key of F, using the same progression.

Especially the bridge features a couple of challenges, with chords up the neck, which are moving fast too. 

We also take a look at the keyboard intro. This could be challenging as well since it requires quite a bit of focused strumming and good timing.
