Lesson notes

Chris de Burgh is a British-Irish singer-songwriter and instrumentalist. He is most famous for his 1986 love song ‘The Lady In Red’, which became a massive hit in many countries.

This lesson shows how to play that particular song in the key of G, where the guitar is capoed on the 3rd fret to put it in the key of Bb as performed on the original recording.

The arrangement is very straight forward and uses six basic open chords only. The strumming should be done gently and in double time.

There are a few chords with a bass note other than the root and it’s nice to pick them out individually.
