  • Hello everyone, today I´m bringing a song called "Shape of my Hearth" by Sting. This song is from the album "Ten Summoner's Tales" (1993), this song is also featured in the Orginal Sound Track of the movie "Léon the professional" (1994).
    The guitar used is a nylon string line guitar with some heavy reverb. The guitar part makes a lot of use of triads, open and close and also there are some triads as upper part of chords.
    One nice detail for this song is that the same guitar part is used for intro, verse and almost all chorus.
    The structure of the song is:

    Intro 8M (01-08)
    Verse 1 8M (09-16)
    Verse 2 8M (17-24)
    Chorus 1 8M (25-32)
    Verse 3 8M (33-40)
    Chorus 2+ turn around 8+3M* (41-51)
    Harmonica solo 8+2M (52-61)
    Verse 4 8M (62-69)
    Verse 5 8M (62-77)
    Chorus 3 8+5M* (78-80)
    Coda 4M (80-84)


    * The last measure of each of this sections is 2/4.

    Some chord diagram has diamond showing the bass notes and the names of each diagram is derived from the overall harmony.

    I have used some bts on the explanatory vids which are panned to the right, so if you turn your pan knob to the left you can hear the guitar alone.
