In this lesson, we'll start to get into the verse chord progression and groove for Closer to Fine.

Surprise! If you learned the intro riff in the last lesson, you're already a good part of the way along. That exact same chord progression and riff continue into the verse as the vocals begin.

The guitar part for the intro and the first half of the verse is exactly the same. Even the energy level stays the same: bold, full-on, hard-hitting, but clean.

And that energy is mirrored in the delivery of the vocals. "I'm trying to tell you something about my life". The singer is telling you to sit up and pay attention.

Both the guitar style and the vocal style reinforce the message. And this is another secret ingredient of this song, and why it is so powerful and effecting. It commands your attention.

The energy and vibe of the song live up to the message of the song. Keep this in mind as we learn more about how to play Closer to Fine.
