Breakfast At Tiffany’s chords and strumming
One hit wonders, Deep Blue Something, recorded ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ back in 1995 and hit the top ten in both the U.S and the U.K. Since then, it has been covered by thousands of musicians down at the local pub.
The seemingly simple chords are not that easy to play at all as this is a very fast song. If you want to include the intro riff, as in the video lessons, then that’s even quicker than the strumming!
Take the intermediate course and learn how to improve your strumming and picking techniques and you will soon be able to play at this kind of speed with ease.
The chords for ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ are very simple, it’s the speed of the strumming and picking the instrumental melody that is hard.
