Here's how to play Take On Me by a-Ha on acoustic guitar!

This is a great example of how to do an acoustic version of a song that doesn't include guitars in the original recording, but can be translated to guitar very effectively - just like A-Ha do in the acoustic video further down this page.

Be sure to watch until the end of the video where I teach the synth riff too!

Take On Me - live performance

I had to include this! Firstly, I love watching sequencer based songs such as this done live. Secondly, Morton hits the high notes so well and he really is singing live - serious props, what a voice!
