Hi y'all, it's Mike from Guitar Tricks teaching you "You Don’t Know Me" as made famous by Mickey Gilley. This is a timeless country standard that features steady acoustic guitar rhythm work and some interesting chord progressions.

Any acoustic guitar will enable you to play this song. If playing the song with a band, choose an acoustic that has a bright, shimmery tone so you'll cut through the wash of keys, vocals, and strings. As some of the chord voicings can be challenging, an acoustic guitar set up for low action can be very helpful for your fingers to cleanly fret the chords.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about open and extended chords, advanced chord progressions, and a country swing feel strummed on an acoustic guitar.

We are in the key of C, with a modulation to Db, a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 72 bpm.
