Hey guys, Hunter Perrin here with Guitar Tricks. In this lesson, we'll be looking at the song "Get Rhythm", as made famous by Johnny Cash.

Many great country and rockabilly songs came out of Sun Studios in Memphis, TN. When you combine the styles of country and rockabilly you get fun, upbeat music that serves as a great study in acoustic boom-chick rhythm, palm muted tick-tack electric guitar, and upper register arpeggio lead guitar. Be sure to check out the other Guitar Tricks lessons dealing with all of these subjects.

We are in the key of F, but we're going to use a capo on the first fret and play open position chords. We are in cut time at 110 beats per minute.
