I think the material is excellent. I’ve benefited so much. I’ve now begun to improvise with some confidence and have written songs that feel authentic. I can now develop musically in a broad and rich way. Your work has illuminated an exciting path forward.– Roger
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.

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 practise in order to get serious results.
