First we are going to learn the intro to our song. We have an organ that comes in on a pick up note, playing a nice melody that is four bars long. Our guitar come in on beat 2 of the third bar, and continues into the verse of a song setting up the first verse.

After two bars of organ, we start in on a chromatic line playing some sixth intervals. This leads us to our C chord, starting on beat 2.

On the & of 2 of our third measure, we start in on our G augmented chord with a laid back melody using our G, B, and E strings. If an augmented chord is new to you; it's a major chord with a sharp 5 (#5.) In this chord, those notes are G, B, and D#. This creates really nice tension before resolving to the 1 chord of our first A section

With our guitar sneaking in after the organ intro, we do a great job of building momentum in our first A section which we will take a look at next.
