In this song tutorial we're going to learn to play the classic rock hit "Long Train Runnin'" as made famous by the Doobie Brothers in 1973. Written by Tom Johnston, this tune features one of the most signature rhythm guitar parts of its time. This is a great example of a high energy funk-rock song propelled by stereo electric guitars and spiced up with cool and colorful acoustic guitar counterpoints. We'll check out the gear & tone, we'll learn the signature rhythm guitar part, the acoustic guitar counter parts, the 12 bar chord progression, some rhythmic variations, and the four guitar outro. Finally we'll put it all together and jam with the backing track!
