Yeah, Big Country! My favorite band from the 80's. Thanks a lot.[br][br]I've been trying to learn 'In a Big Country' as well as some other BC songs earlier. There is so much going on with different guitar layers, no wonder I couldn't tackle it by myself. Were well arranged guitar layers. I thaught it isn't possible to perform this with only single guitar, but the way you did it sounds very close.

Thanks Jarkko! I had a blast digging into this classic tune and exploring all these great, unique guitar parts.

Big Country is a 2 guitar band, so yes, indeed it's challenging to fully play this song on one guitar, so it's good to know we came close!

Enjoy!

There is a notation error on "Verse: Guitar 1" lesson.[br]https://www.guitartricks.com/lesson.php?input=27609&s_id=2315

On video you say and play F# minor, but on the notation there F# major. Also F# major chord mark is on Guitar 2 notation for verse. Same goes with full performance notation.

Hey, Jarkko. This should be fixed now. Thanks for the heads up!
