In this tutorial we are going to learn how to play "Tattoos on This Town" as performed by Jason Aldean. This modern country hit is equal parts country, classic rock, and a great example of Nashville style production. In this tutorial, I am going to show you some of the parts you hear in the recording along with how to get those tones, plus a way you can play through the whole song with an acoustic guitar. It's important to note that there are several layers of guitars in this song, and at times would require 3 to 4 guitars to play everything. For this tutorial, I am going to focus on the main parts and melodies along with the acoustic.

Using a variety of guitars and tones, I am going to break down this song section by section. That mixed with an acoustic guitar throughout, accounts for a song that's full of energy and really, really fun to play with any guitar you have at home.

"Tattoos on This Town" is in the Key of D major, at 81 BPM, and in 4/4 time.
