In this tutorial we are going to learn how to play "Sold Me Down The River" as performed by The Alarm.

This track features a single electric guitar part, playing throughout the entire song. It's a very present electric guitar with a biting tone with plenty of overdrive, compression and reverb. We will be using this guitar to carry the song, playing a mixture of strong melodies, call and response licks, along with a really cool solo. Our guitar will be in Dropped D tuning.

"Sold Me Down The River" is in the Key of D major, at 113 BPM, and in 4/4 time.
