Every Breath You Take   Police

  Every Breath You Take  Police






Most of this is based on 'add9' chords, with a nice picking 


pattern too. Use the right hand palm to damp the strings and get 


a dry staccato feel.  Use a delay set to one quaver note length


so that the delay is echoing the picked note, but one note behind.








You can play this by fingering only three notes of the chord to start 


with and moving your first finger across to get the top note. I'll mark  


the notes to play with the first finger with a '*' then you can see how


this finger moves between strings to get the notes.





(You only need this for the first two shapes)





The basic chord progression is :





Intro :  Aadd9   F#madd9  Dadd9 D  Eadd9 E  Aadd9


Verse :  Aadd9   F#madd9  Dadd9 D  Eadd9 E  F#madd9


         Aadd9   F#madd9  Dadd9 D  Eadd9 E  Aadd9
