Lesson notes

My Way is a song set to the music of the French song 'Comme d'habitude' composed by Jacques Revaux with lyrics by Gilles Thibaut and Claude Francois'. The English lyrics were written by Paul Anka, who gave it to Frank Sinatra.

In this lesson we take a look at a simple fingerpicking and a little bit of strumming accompaniment. 

The arrangement is done with chord shapes in the key of C, where the guitar is capoed on the 2nd fret. This puts everything in the absolute key of D. 

We break down the fingerpicking and strumming, and of course work our way through all the chords. 

The song has been covered by many artists, including Elvis Presley. We take a short look at his version as well.
