How to play – Gold

Growing up I loved Spandau Ballet. My friend liked Duran Duran and never the twain met (although Rio is one of my favourite albums of the 80’s). I love performing this, it feels so liberating.

I’ve recorded this tutorial which shows how I play it; it’s not particularly polished but it shows you all the shapes you’ll need. If you want a more faithful version I daresay that there are others. See below for the chord diagrams. As I say on the video, I’m using a capo and the chords can move up or down the neck depending on your vocal range.

I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I do.

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…….?
