In this Sailing guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this classic ballad by Christopher Cross note-for-note.

Before you start trying to follow along with the video lesson, it is important to get into the same tuning as the original recording. That tuning is called open “D” tuning. Those notes, starting from the 6th string are, D A D F# A D. I will also work you through this tuning in the video lesson.

Once you get into the right tuning, you will be able to simply strum all the open strings of your guitar together to create a beautiful sounding D major chord.

I will take you step-by-step through each section of the song in the same order that they appear on the original recording.

I believe the original recording was played with a pick and a consistent arpeggio picking pattern. You can see Christopher Cross do that on a lot of older performances, and it definitely sounds like into was played like that way originally.

However, in more recent performances, you can see Christopher Cross adding the low bass notes to the arpeggio pattern and fingerpicking the whole thing. I will demonstrate how to play both versions since they both sound great.

I hope you guys enjoy learning the very unique and beautiful guitar parts in “Sailing”! #sailingguitarlesson #christophercross #guitarcovers

    One cool things you'll find the once you get into open D tuning if you go back and look at this lesson is you could play almost 80% of the Bee Gees 70s music because Barry Gibb wrote almost all of the stuff in open D tuning…you can one finger cord away on jive talkin staying alive Night fever just get down and have some fun long as you got it in that tuning just saying.💃🕺
