The Moody Blues were pioneers in brining symphonic sounds into the world of rock and roll. Their 1967 album Days Of Future Passed is even considered one of the forerunners of the progressive rock movement that evolved into the 1970s. Their sound took on a slightly more pop/rock feel over the next decade and we now have many great guitar songs, mostly written by Justin Hayward, but John Lodge, Mike Pinder, Ray Thomas and Graeme Edge all made significant contributions.


1) Nights In White Satin

Nights In White Satin is from Days Of Future Passed and is a basic strumming song. This short lesson goes over the chord progression and includes a bit on understanding time signatures.


2) Tuesday Afternoon

Tuesday Afternoon, written by Justin Hayward, contains one of his signature sounds- a catchy guitar intro. This lesson includes tab to both the way it was done in 1967 as well as Justin's more recent solo versions.


3) Question

Question, from album A Question Of Balance, has been an elusive song to many guitar students for years. It was played by Justin Hayward on a 12-string guitar in Open C Tuning (C-G-C-G-C-E), and included a very quick strumming sequence in the first part of the song. The second part was actually a different song until Justin realized they went well together, being in the same tuning. This lesson looks at a way of simplifying the strumming, as well as doubling the speed for the original sound.


4) Melancholy Man

Melancholy Man is also from A Question Of Balance and was written by Mike Pinder, the man responsible for bringing the orchestral sound of the Mellotron to the Moodies. It is a simple 3-chord progression in the key of D Minor and includes a haunting, descending melody line, which is incorporated into the guitar accompaniment for this short lesson.


5) The Story In Your Eyes

The Story In Your Eyes includes one of the best opening guitar riffs of all time. It is really just built around a set of A and A minor-shaped chords moving up the neck and not too difficult to play, although the timing is a bit tricky. The rest of the song is simple, but fast-paced strumming. This is from the album Every Good Boy Deserves Favour.


6) The Voice

In the late 1970s The Moody Blues reconvened with a bit more commercial sound and continued releasing some great songs, mostly penned by Justin Hayward. The Voice is from their 1981 album Long Distance Voyager and presents a fascinating chord progression, using chords from many different keys. This lesson is presented in our 'Work It Out' style where you are encouraged to figure out the chords by ear, with many hints and suggestions from Neil. If you choose to try this approach we suggest not printing the chart until you have gone as far as you can. The entire song is taught in Part 6.
