While there are several guitars throughout the recording, for this tutorial I am going to take a single, acoustic guitar approach. This makes it so you can easily play along with the tutorial, and with the original recording. There are two acoustics in the song, and I have taken the main parts from both and combined them into one for us to learn. We have some electric guitars in the backing track to make it more like the original as well.

As an added bonus, I am also going to teach a "strum along" version. While you will be strumming along in the choruses, the rest of the guitar parts are fairly intricate picking, arpeggios, and string skipping. Giving you this alternative means you can play along with the song by learning all the parts in the tutorial, or by just strumming along. I will go over both.

Using an acoustic guitar with the capo on the second fret, "Please Come to Boston" is in the key of E major, at 132 BPM, and in 4/4 time.
