There are 2 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is an acoustic guitar that plays the iconic opening double stop riff as well as some chord arpeggiations and strums throughout. Guitar 2 is an clean electric guitar on the edge of breakup that adds some great rhythm and fills in the choruses as well as a killer guitar solo.

The tune starts off with the acoustic guitar playing an iconic melody using double stops. Next, the verse features a cool chord progression that is arpeggiated by the acoustic. The chorus brings up the dynamic a bit with some steady strums from Guitar 1. Halfway through the chorus, Guitar 2 enters the mix with some killer fills and great rhythm work to build the arrangement.

There’s a tasty guitar solo, followed by an adventurous bridge section that introduces some cool chords and key changes, then brings us back perfectly for the final chorus.
In the following lessons, we’ll talk about double stops, suspended and extended chords, dynamics, and some classic rock lead approaches. We are in the key of E major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 117 BPM.
