This song has the same progression throughout the whole song, so in order to keep it fresh they "modulate" up a whole step after the second chorus. This just means that they change the key to be one whole note higher- same basic harmony but higher. It's close enough to sound related, but new enough to inject some new energy into the progression. That's why it's a classic trick! In this lesson I'm gonna show you the two new voicings that the acoustic guitar uses after the modulation.
