"Melt With You" - English Beat (early '80's)
This song is a snap to learn and hard to forget. I used the video of this song on Mtv to get the chords and solos. The guitar players hands are in good view throughout. It's a very basic song, but when done right (and with an OK voice) it sounds very nice.
I play it on an 'old' Fender acustic 6 string. It will definitely sound better using a large bodied 12 string.
Apology: I'm not that well versed in the names of different chords, so I don't know the name of the two chords in this song.
These two chords shown are 90% of the song. The intro and the chorus are played the same. (Each chord strummed for an 8 count) For the refrain the #1 chord is held and picked. The rest is even simpler. The refrain, bridge and solo shown here are paterns which are repeated.
Good luck and (as always) have fun.
