Stay Guitar Tutorial (Lisa Loeb) Acoustic Guitar Lesson

Check out my new guitar tutorial on how to play ‘Stay (I Missed You)’ by Lisa Loeb & Nine Stories. In the guitar lesson I’ll take you through all the parts in the song in detail with chord boxes and accompanying tab.

This guitar lesson goes out to my student, Delphine, who indulged my compulsion to transcribe it during her lesson! This was such a huge song in the mid-90s and I have such great memories of it. I just never took the time or thought to work it out. But here it is!

I transcribed this from a combination of the album version and several live performances of her playing this online. This video was particularly helpful –

The song opens with a lovely picked part which uses some interesting chord ideas, with possibly some new chord shapes for you.

The verse has a cool 16th note strumming vibe, with an uncommon grip for the Am7 chord. There’s a lot of barre chords here so plenty to keep you busy.

PLEASE give me a thumbs up if you enjoyed the guitar tutorial, and don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE, COMMENT, LIKE and SHARE.

See you soon.
