Guitar #1 will be our nylon string guitar that we will use to play our single note melodies throughout the song. These melodies emulate a walking bass line, and have a very classic feel to them that do an amazing job of guiding the flow of the song. Make sure your guitar is in Dropped D tuning, which makes the tuning now D-A-D-G-B-E. To really nail the sound of this part, I am playing closer to the bridge of the guitar to have it really cut through. This guitar will be playing throughout the entire track.

Guitar #2 is our acoustic, playing chords on the 2 and 4 of each phrase throughout the song. This helps hold down the back beat of the song and really helps outline the chords as well with Guitar #1. We will be playing a variety of chord shapes and inversions that are easy to change through and sound great with the piano.
