Mike will show you the 3 guitar layers in this song. Guitars 1&2 are crunch electric guitars that provide a rhythm guitar backbone throughout. Guitar 3 is the lead guitar that digs into some killer leads and fills.

The tune starts out with the iconic bluesy riff that carries into the verses. The prechorus changes the feel with some choppy chord strums, and the chorus features a military march type groove for contrast. There’s a great bridge section that features a nursery rhyme sound, and a killer rock guitar solo to boot.

In the following lessons, we’ll talk about amped up bluesy riffing, dynamics, and some textbook rock lead approaches. We are in the key of E minor and G minor, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 132 BPM.
