What's up everyone, it's Mike from Guitar Tricks teaching you "Jeremy", as made famous by Pearl Jam. This is a 90s grunge classic filled with some loose, vibey, and emotive guitar playing. The tune features some great riffs and layering, and contains some awesome dynamics that draws the listener in.

There are three electric guitar layers in this song. All of the guitars combine single note riffs and simple chord progressions to build the arrangement with a massive wall of sound. There is no real guitar solo in this song, just sections that take you from a simple riff with a quiet dynamic to full out swirling/atmospheric noise.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about power chords, triads, arpeggiation, octaves, and dynamics. We are in the key of A, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 106 bpm.
