In 1980 Christopher ruled the airwaves with his soft, smooth sound, with Sailing and Ride Like The Wind leading the charge. Sailing is played in Open D Tuning (D-A-D-F#-A-D), with an arpeggio accompaniment featuring a few hybrid chords, common chords with unusual bass notes as well as other colorful chords like add 9 or Major 7.
This lesson shows how to add the bass notes to the arpeggio, which makes it a bit more challenging than what Christopher plays as part of a big ensemble, but makes the accompaniment complete for a solo guitarist.
