Come To My Window Chord Chart
by Melissa Etheridge

Welcome to my Come To My Window chord chart by Melissa Etheridge. Melissa is one of my favorite singer-songwriters and was the guitarist I wanted to play guitar like growing. Most of the first songs I learned were Melissa based and while I couldn’t play many of them, it really peaked my interested in learning to play the guitar.

Come To My Window in one of my favorite songs to perform live. Sounds great on Melissa’s signature 12-string and we are going to talk about how to play the classic hit here. The chords themselves are fairly easy, it’s more the strumming pattern that’s a bit complicated. The strum does up with the the G chord changing on the up strum. Melissa sometimes does even more strumming than what’s written below and I honestly just go crazy and do whatever on this song.

I actually go over how to play rhythms just like the one below in my INTERMEDIATE GUITAR COURSE. If you are looking to advance your strumming, do check it out!
