There are 2 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is a clean electric guitar through a Leslie Rotary speaker that plays rhythm guitar throughout. You'll need a capo placed at the 3rd fret for Guitar 1. Guitar 2 is a slightly overdriven electric that plays the singing leads in the tune.

The song starts off with a turnaround of beautiful upward chord voice motion that is complimented by the iconic lead guitar. Next is a verse that is very much a jazz standard progression played in an easy rock arrangement.

There is also a bridge section that builds the dynamic considerably and adds a layer of depth and drama. The classic guitar solo outlines the progression perfectly with bends, slides, and standard lead guitar tricks.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about the use of a capo, open chords and barre chords, dynamics, and some classic rock lead work. We are in the key of C major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 68 BPM.
