What's up people! This is Henrik for Guitar Tricks and today I'm going to show you how to play "Drive My Car", as made famous by The Beatles. This song is one of the more rocking Beatles tunes with some really interesting guitar playing.

We'll start out with a bluesy intro lick that sets the mood for the rest of the tune. In the verses we'll be looking into a Motown style guitar part that will outline the chord progression with a quick walking riff. For the chorus we're going to really hold it down with some pumping quarter notes and again, outline the chord progression with a riff.

We'll also be checking out a really vibey guitar solo where we'll be using a slide to get the right licks, and we're also going to check out a guitar version of the rhythmic piano part that appears in the choruses and the outro.

This song is in a 4/4 time signature and at a tempo of 122 BPM.
