Mr. Lonely, Bobby Vinton (Advanced)

No, I don’t know this from the Akon song. If you don’t know what the Akon song is, don’t bother looking it up. I actually got reminded of this song when I put on a random Netflix Original Series and this was the opening song. It was immediately stuck in my head. I wrote this arrangement that night and haven’t thought about it a lot since but I think it’s a pretty good take on a simple chord change and melody. It’s interesting to try to juggle the bass line, piano line, and soaring vocal line. Also, shout out to that great augmented chord in the bridge, with a smaller shout to my boy the four m6 chord. Enjoy!

(Advanced guitar tabs generally include a very ornamented version of the melody, chord markings above (with extra extensions and variations), kick-offs, tags, and improvisation that drifts far from the melody at hand. Expect to come across hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides and more in all kinds of combinations as well as syncopation, triplets and other rhythmic challenges. These tabs are excellent if you want to get inside the head of another improviser and explore the choices that an advanced flatpicker might consider.)
