How to Play – Tainted Love

Here’s another classic song – Tainted Love.  Being a child of the 80’s I will always associate it with the Marc Almond version … love it.  It’s very straight forward, just keep your 3rd and 4th fingers in place and the rest just falls in to place.  The C7 shape goes everywhere and so it’s a good one to know. Here are the chords all written out. You all know the lyrics….. don’t you…….?

How to play…..

img_5288

The simple answer is every single day, even if only for 5 minutes.  I’m missing playing on the street but enjoying playing at home.  I’m worried about many things,  most of which I can’t do anything about. One of the things I worry about is that I might forget all the songs I play …. so I play a few every day. I’ve made a list… this is probably most of them.  If you would like me to do a tutorial on how I play any of these, leave a comment.

How to play…. No More Lonely Nights

while we are all at home with the Covid-19 lock down, I thought I would share with you how I play some of my songs.  If you’ve heard me play you’ll know that I don’t play exact copies of the songs but do my own arrangements; if you want to learn how to play exactly like it is on the record, you best go somewhere else.

Anyway, I’m going to kick off with – No More Lonely Nights by Paul McCartney. I love this song and it took me a while to get my head around how to play it as there’s the weird bit at the end. I decided to leave that bit out. Here is the written version of the chords
