I Want You To Want Me
Brandon Trapp walks you through a classic tune from Cheap Trick, “I Want You To Want Me.” This classic tune first appeared on Cheap Tricks 2nd studio album, In Color, which released in 1977. At first, the song didn’t chart in America, but was a big hit in Japan. The success of a number of their singles in Japan led to their now famous 1979 concert in Budokon. The live recording of this concert was a smash hit in the US, as well as the live single version of “I Want You To Want Me.”

Brandon plays a Gibson USA Les Paul Standard in this lesson.
