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.

Chord progression

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.

Improving your speed

Most aspiring musicians want to find out how fast they can play. Often, the younger they are, the more important this is.

You don’t need to break any speed records but it is nice to know that you’re not going to have to discard parts because they are too fast.

To be able to move between the strumming and the picking part in ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ is a good benchmark, rarely will you need to play faster than this.

Take the intermediate guitar course and you’ll learn much more about playing with great speed, what to focus on and how often you should practice in order to get serious results.

Our lives have come between us
