There are 2 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is an acoustic guitar with a capo on the 2nd fret that provides the backbone of the tune. Guitar 2 is an electric guitar that plays some rhythm and lead throughout.

The intro features a hook melody played by Guitar 2 that is revisited thru the song. The verses play a busy chord progression and a lower dynamic, letting the lead vocal tell the lyric story arc. The band kicks into to a fuller, high dynamic groove in the bridge with more interesting chord choices. The tune fades out on a high dynamic vamp of the chord progression with Guitar 2 playing the melodic hook with some added lead fills.

To play this tune using one guitar, we'll play the acoustic guitar all the way through.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about steady acoustic strumming, open chords, the use of a capo, double stops, dynamics, and some lead guitar fill approaches. We are in the key of E major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 124 BPM.
