Lesson notes

You Needed Me is a beautiful love song written by American songwriter, pianist and producer Randy Goodrum.

It was a number one hit single in many countries, including the US, in 1978 for Canadian singer Anne Murray, for which she won a Grammy Award, the first to be awarded to a Canadian artist.

This lesson is partly based on her version and covers a fingerpicking arrangement in the key of G, where the guitar is capoed on the 2nd fret.

It features a relatively easy fingerpicking pattern, including some variations, and mostly basic open chords in first position. There are also several chords with bass notes other than the root.
