There are 2 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is a light crunch electric guitar that strums the chord progression and adds a backbeat staccato pulse to the arrangement. Guitar 2 is an overdriven guitar that adds a cool riff to the chorus and adds some muscle to the last half of the song.

The tune starts off with a quiet guitar intro in loose half time that harkens back to an early rock style. Next, the band kicks into a swinging groove for the verse, with Guitar 1 outlining the chord progression with some chord stabs in a doo-wop style. The chorus continues the vibe with Guitar 2 entering the mix with a cool single note riff.

There’s a bridge section that opens up and modulates the chord progression, with Guitar 2 playing unison with the walking bass line. The final verse reprises the intro chord progression as a very cool arrangement trick to bring the song full circle. The outro winds down the song with the chorus progression through the fadeout.

In the following lessons, we’ll talk about extended chords, triads, backbeat chord stabs,
swung triplet groove, and dynamics. We are in the key of A major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 99 BPM.
