Let me explain to you how to play Sealed With A Kiss by Brian Hyland. The song was initially recorded
in 1960 by The Four Seasons but failed to chart.
In 1962 Hyland picked up the song which was written
by Gary Geld and Peter Udell and recorded his version.
The song went straight up the charts and peaked at #3 in both the US and the UK. Over the coming years, artists
such as Bobby Vinton, The Letterman, Bobby Vee, Gary and The Playboys and others have all recorded this song.
But Hylands version was the highest charted version until 1989 when Jason Donovan hit #1 in the UK with his version.

Strumming Pattern For Sealed With A Kiss
There are two patterns you can use for this song. The first I call a shuffle pattern where you play a note-
dn-up-dn-up-note-up-dn-up then repeat as you move thru the song. The second I call a rake pattern and it's a
note-dn-up-note-up-dn-up where the first dn-up is much slower and drawn out.
You'll see this pattern when I hit the line "ill see you in the sunlight". You can use either pattern for the
verses, or mixed them up anywhere in the song. You decide what's best for your version..
