Hey Mike, I hope you had a great Christmas. How would you go about doing a one guitar performance of this BOC classic. Thanks

Hey Jamboss! Yes indeed, a single guitar performance is challenging as this classic has a bunch of great layered guitar parts!

If I were the only guitarist to play this live, I would play Guitar 2 all the way through, and revert to Guitar 1 whenever there isn't a lead part. This would work fine if playing with a full band or to a full backing track.

If you were to play this tune with no backing band, and only a singer, for example, I would rely much more on Guitar 1's parts to make sure the foundation is covered.

Make sense?
