Sting always claimed that this was his favorite song as well did Andy Summer. The song, “Message in a Bottle,” is about one man’s struggle as a castaway in hopes that by placing a letter in a bottle, a passing ship would find it, finding him.
The Main Riff
This riff contains chord voicings that are typical of Andy Summers- specifically the C#add9 and F#add9 chords. It’s a wide spread for your fingers, so use your 1st, 3rd and 4th fingers to fret them.
