In this series of song lessons, Mike Olekshy will be teaching you "When the Stars Go Blue", by Tim McGraw. Mike will introduce the song and talk about gear and tones, then teach the acoustic guitar parts for the verse, pre-chorus, and chorus. We'll then break down the parts for guitars 2 and 3 in the pre-chorus, chorus, and re-intro; after which we'll learn guitar 2's part in verse 2 and the jam fadeout. We'll conclude with a performance and a jam along.
Mike will show you all 3 guitar layers. Guitar 1 is a clean and twangy electric guitar that plays the rhythm and riffs in the tune. Guitar 2 is an acoustic guitar that strums the chord progression throughout, and even picks some cool arpeggiations later in the song. Guitar 3 is the lead electric guitar that takes a solo and digs into some great lead fills throughout.
