Mike will show you the 2 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is an acoustic guitar that lays the foundation of the tune with some steady, consistent strumming. Guitar 2 is an electric guitar that plays melodies, fills, and leads throughout the arrangement.

This tune was originally part of a rock opera but it still works as a stand-alone song. There’s a dramatic piano & drum intro on the recording, but we’ll focus on starting the song on the first verse with some lively acoustic strumming of a simple chord progression with a triplet-feel.

The chorus is epic with more acoustic strums and Guitar 2 adding a descending melody and some lead fills. There is also a bridge section that modulates to an uplifting feel for contrast.

Tune your guitars down 1/2 step to Eb to play along with this tutorial.

In the following lessons, we’ll talk about steady acoustic strums, open and barre chords, and some solid electric rhythm and lead work. We are in the key of E minor and major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 76 BPM.
