There are 3 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is an acoustic guitar that forms the strumming foundation of the tune. Guitar 2 is a chimey clean electric guitar that adds a nice compliment of rhythm guitar to Guitar 1. Guitar 3 is a clean electric guitar that plays some short & sweet lead breaks with a slide.

The intro and verse start off the tune with a simple descending chord progression. Next is a prechorus section with a new progression that adds a cool augmented chord for color. That leads into an anthemic chorus with a very simple chord progression. There are also a few lead breaks that feature some very melodic slide guitar licks.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about steady acoustic strumming, open chords, triads, and some tasty slide lead guitar. We are in the key of G major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 115 BPM.
