Every Breath You Take by The Police works great played as fingerstyle, and once you get the chords down it flows really nicely.

The song is based around the use of add9th chords more or less throughout. If you’re not used to them you may find some of the fingerings a little difficult at first. Nonetheless, they’re very rich sounding and well worth getting to know.

The Lesson

The verse uses more or less the same chord progression as the intro. The only difference is that for bars 7 and 8 it goes to Emadd9 instead of Gadd9.

As always take your time and focus heavily on accuracy over speed.
