Mike will show you the 2 electric guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is a clean guitar that plays variations on a static bluesy riff in A. Guitar 2 is the lead guitar that adds some lead fills throughout.

The tune riffs on just one chord throughout, and grooves through intro, verse, and chorus sections. There’s also an interlude with Guitar 2 adding some bluesy licks, and an extended outro that rounds out the tune.

Guitar 1 uses a Open G tuning with a capo on the 2nd fret. Guitar 2 uses standard tuning.

In the following lessons, we’ll talk about the use of a capo and open tuning, a blues shuffle groove, and bluesy riffs and licks. We are in the key of A, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 182 BPM.
