In this tutorial we are going to learn how to play "Speed of the Sound of Loneliness" as performed by John Prine. This song features an easy chord progression using open chords and finger picking, along with plenty of lead guitar licks.

We will be using two guitars to play this track, an acoustic guitar to play our open chords and finger picking rhythms along with an electric to play all the lead guitar melodies and guitar solo.

The song is in the key of G, at 162 bpm, and is in 4/4 time.
