1. Faith

Faith hails from George Michaels debut album and was not originally going to be released as a single mainly because the original recording had no guitar solo and was too short.

So once George Michael realized the song would likely do well as a single, a guitar solo was added to the track.

The song reached #1 in the US, Canada, Australia and #2 in the UK.

  • Drop D Tuning = No
  • Capo = 2nd fret
  • Rhythm = a chop rhythm using a shuffle 
  • Picking = Yes with rhythm
  • Chords = A, D, Gbm, Bm, E
