There is just one electric guitar layer in this song, and it features a textbook combination of early rock and roll rhythm and lead approaches.

The tune starts out with an aggressive intro lick using double stops. The band kicks into a 10 bar I-IV-V progression that forms the foundation of the verse sections. There are also 2 guitar solos using a melodic and aggressive double-stop approach in the middle of the song. The tune ends off with yet another melodic double-stop solo in the outro.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about barre chords, double stops, and an aggressive strumming approach. We are in the key of D major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 177 BPM.
