What's up everyone, it's Mike from Guitar Tricks, teaching you "Song Of The South" as made famous by Alabama. This is a pop country classic from the 80s that features some simple but effective acoustic and electric guitar playing.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about a open chords, power chords, a boom-chick strumming pattern, and rhythm fills.

We're in the key of A, a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 81 bpm, which changes to 165 bpm in the double time outro section.
