I’ve been edumacating my little sons on Classic Rock recently while getting ready in the morning. Each week from Monday to Friday mornings, I put on a CD so they get used to it and talk about the band a bit, the members, the songs etc.  Last week it was The Police’s Greatest Hits compilation and I felt sufficiently inspired to go out and get a tab book with some of the songs in, finally settling on this:

So now I can play bits of songs that I always wanted to such as Message In a Bottle, Every Breath You Take, De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da, etc. and *finally* I know *that chord* played in Walking on the Moon:

Play it with an upstroke after doing the bass bit, and have a light chorus and delay on.
