There are 3 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is an acoustic guitar with a capo at the third fret that forms the strumming foundation of the tune. Guitars 2 and 3 are clean electric guitars that add some tasty slide licks.

The tune starts off with a 2 bar intro featuring an open D chord and some relaxed strumming. Next, the band kicks into the groove, with the guitar playing a winding chord progression with some steady strums. There are also some slide guitars that add fills throughout but never distract from the vocals. The primary purpose of the guitar in this song is to ornament and accompany the vocal story.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about the use of a capo, open chords and barre chords, a steady strumming pattern, and some melodic slide licks. We are in the key of F major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 82 BPM.
