When Love Breaks Down (1985)
(Paddy McAloon)
From: "Steve McQueen"
A very beautiful song and a great recording, too. But instruments and
harmonies create dense layers of chord textures that are very difficult to
recreate on one guitar. So a lot of what is here is my interpretation of
what is played. Take the basic chords and try to create your own
arrangement. Enjoy!
