In this song tutorial we'll be looking at "Don't Get Me Wrong", as made famous by The Pretenders. This is a classic track that features some steady acoustic and electric rhythm playing and a melodic guitar solo. It's a bit of an unusual form, since there's no "chorus" per se, just repeating verses and a bridge.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about a swung 8th note feel, muted double stops, and chord arpeggiation. We are in the key of C major, 4/4 time signature, and a tempo of 203 bpm. So let's dig in and check out these parts!
