There are 2 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is a clean electric guitar that gives the tune its bounce. Guitar 2 is an acoustic guitar with a capo on the 1st fret that strums to establish the groove.

The intro features a cool melody from Guitar 1 that sets the vibe. The band kicks into the groove and settles into the first verse. The chorus continues the feel of the song with a different chord progression. There is also a guitar solo that occurs twice in the song featuring some killer old school country melodies that mimics the vocal melody.

To play this tune using one guitar, choose either Guitar 1 or Guitar 2, and play it all the way through.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about steady acoustic strumming, open chords, the use of a capo, boom chucka rhythm with alternating bass motion, palm muting, and simple country lead approaches. We are in the key of C# major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 91 BPM (effectively 182 BPM with cut time).
