In this tutorial I'll be teaching you "Personal Jesus", as made famous by Depeche Mode. Normally, you don't think of Depeche Mode as a guitar band, but this song is an exception. It features an iconic single-note riff that defines the tune, sets the mood, and gives a spaghetti-western feel throughout.

In the following lessons, we'll explore the bluesy main riff, as well as a cool slide lick, and some interesting riff variations and turnarounds. We'll also talk about the effect of using a capo on your tone. We are in the key of F# minor, a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 130 bpm.
