Heartbreak Chord Chart
by Pat Benatar

Wow. Love this song. This is my Heartbreak chord chart by Pat Benatar. One of my favorite singers and her husband who plays guitar is an amazing player. Seen them live and was completely blown away. But enough about that, let's get on the the guitar chord chart.

I would consider this song a little bit more intermediate because of the changes on the and's and the speed at which it is played. It's a very fast song, but super fun to play. All the chords are played as power chords.

The strumming is all down eighth notes. I like to palm mute (PM) the strumming a lot since that's what it sound like that song is doing.

Intro Strum: 
PM                      *
1+ 2+ 3+ 4+ 1+ 2+ 3+--
Fm                     Ab

*
Release the palm muting on the Ab5

Chorus Strum:
*       *        *       *     *         *     *      *      *           *
1       2    3 +  4   1      2  3 4  1     2   3 +  1 +  2 + 3 + 4
