Below is the lesson for “Last Christmas” by Wham!
A cheerful take on a modern-day Christmas classic. From a playing perspective, this is a great fingerstyle piece for the accomplished intermediate player.
If we look at the harmony of this song (sans the intro), we’ll notice that it’s comprised of 4 chords:
C (1) Am (6) Dm (2) G (5)
But to make this arrangement interesting sounding, you’ll be voicing them throughout the entire span of the neck. In other words, you’ll learn many different variations on the 4 chords.
As such, I’d recommend learning this song two bars at a time. And most importantly, start slow. Try counting or singing the rhythms as you play. They can get a bit syncopated at times.
