In this Head Over Heels guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this great song by Tears For Fears off of their Songs From The Big Chair album.
The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E.
I have arranged this lesson to be best played by two acoustic guitarists. I will still be teaching the electric guitar melodies, albeit on acoustic guitar, but I think the song is best served with two guitar players to recreate all the musical layers of the song.
There are so many layers to the instrumentation on the original recording. Much of that is done with a synth. However, I think it works quite well on the guitar. You can play a single guitar arrangement by just choosing the part that you like most at any given time.
I will go through each section of the song in the order that each appears on the original recording.
I have also transcribed the keyboard solo for guitar. This works quite well and is pretty easy to play!
Have fun learning this great classic from the greatest decade in music history!
