I’ve split the lesson down into five sections – the Intro, the verse, the short chorus, the bridge and the outro chorus. Don’t forget that the Intro also functions as the Chorus AFTER the bridge . Once you’ve learned these sections, you should be able to put them together to play through this great soul classic!
