Lesson notes

Please Forgive Me is a slow power ballad by Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams, and co-written by producer Robert ‘Mutt’ Lange.

It was released on his 1993 Greatest Hits album ‘So Far So Good’ and became a massive radio hit all over the world.

Even though we mostly take a look at how Bryan performs it in more recent years, in which he sticks to playing through two verses and two chorus’, we also go a little bit through the album version.

The lesson teaches how to play the song in both the original key, the key of A, as well as the key of G, where the guitar is capoed on the 2nd fret.

The key of G is by far the easiest, especially if one would want to play the album version, which includes a key change in the final chorus, taking the progression a whole step up.
