Lesson notes

Chris Isaak’s 1989 album Heart Shaped World included the hauntingly beautiful ballad Wicked Game.

Chris said he wrote it in a very short time when he heard someone was coming over who he was probably better off not seeing.

In any case, the event left us with a simple progression, a very melodic riff, and a serious challenge for any singer.

This lesson presents a great way to incorporate the instrumental themes into the progression and adapt them to the acoustic guitar.
