In this tutorial you'll learn how to play the song "Tennessee Flat Top Box", as made famous by Johnny Cash. This song features all of his signature guitar parts and even a little more.

It can be a little confusing when you first listen to it, because everything is based around the lyrics and the story he is telling, which leads to some uneven measures and some occasional confusion in the band. So it's whole a different mentality, but it's a lot of fun!

First we'll break down the intro riff. Then we'll look at how to play that reverbed-out electric rhythm guitar part, the acoustic rhythm guitar, the instrumental section, the form and how to follow the lyrics, how to imitate the tones that you hear and much more.
