This is how to play When I cry. What this video is going to do is show you how to play the song when I cry so we’ll start with the performance of the song so you can hear how its supposed to sound and then we break the song down phrase by phrase to show you how to play it. Before we start I should say that we are in open D tuning which is D A D F# A D but I tend to refer to the strings by the names in standard tuning so I will be referring to the top string as Top E even though we all know its tuned to a D
