Before we start digging into all the great guitar parts in this song, let's talk briefly about the gear and the tones I'll be using for the different parts.

For the acoustic rhythm guitar I'm using my Martin-style VKV acoustic, and I'm getting the sound that you're hearing from a combination of my built-in pickup and the overhead mic that I'm also talking through.

For the lead guitar I'm using my Gibson 335 here on the bridge pickup, and I'm running that through a modeled version of a Fender amp with a mostly clean tone. I have a little bit of reverb, but other than that this tone is very basic, and it'll work well on any guitar.
