Form of the Song

"Alejandro" is the third single from the record,
The Fame Monsters, the follow-up by American pop singer, Lady Gaga. This song was the last single released from the album, co-written by Gaga. The Billboard Hot 100 charts have listed "Alejandro" as its seventh consecutive Lady Gaga track in its top ten.

The song used a fundamental rhythm across the five different chords. The chords can be played in their simplistic form, or as bar chords, whichever is more comfortable. The strumming pattern is tight on the verse, using a palm-muted rhythm, helping to keep control on the sound. The chorus opens up the notes a little more and lets them ring out.
