What's up it's Mike from Guitar Tricks, teaching you the classic tune "Synchronicity II" as made famous by The Police. This is a dark, tense tune with an unconventional song structure, that parallels the unhappiness that lurks under the surface of a mundane daily life, against a monster lurking under the surface of a beautiful lake.

All the guitar parts in this tune are very interesting and combine to really enhance the overall dark mood and tension.

We're using a 4/4 time signature with a tempo of 159bpm. In the following lessons, we'll explore chordal fingerpicking technique, arpeggiation and palm muting, tense chord extensions, harmonizing with the bass, and crazy noises you can get out of your guitar.
