Unchained Melody (The Righteous Brothers) – Fingerstyle Guitar Lesson and TAB

The Righteous Brothers







2nd fret

This is the full fingerstyle guitar lesson for Unchained Melody.

This song was written in 1955 by Alex North and Hy Zaret for the film Unchained. It’s been covered by many artists since then but the most well-known is The Righteous Brothers’ version.

This arrangement is so nice to play that you’ll likely find yourself playing it for hours on end once you’ve learnt it. It’s a little tricky to play at times due to a few somewhat large stretches but well worth the effort required.
