Lesson notes

(Everything I Do) I Do It For You is a power ballad by Canadian rock singer-songwriter Bryan Adams. It appears on the soundtrack of the 1991 film ‘Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves’, for which it earned a Grammy Award for Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television,. It was also included on his sixth studio album ‘Waking Up The Neighbours’, released in 1992.

The lesson takes a look at how Bryan usually performs it on stage. It covers the progression, the chords, the strumming and the guitar solo, which he occasionally plays on an acoustic guitar.

The song is in the key of Db, but uses the chord shapes in the key of C, where the guitar is capoed on the 1st fret, although nowadays he often performs it without it.

There is also a segment in which I explain how to find the exact same note on another string, by using the 5 Fret Rule.
