Mike will show you the 2 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is an acoustic guitar that plays some gentle arpeggiated chords as well as some full dynamic high energy strumming. Guitar 2 is a crunch electric guitar that plays some aggressive strums and tasty licks in the second half of the tune.

The tune opens with the acoustic guitar playing a nice chord progression with some picked arpeggiations. The verse and chorus section are played twice through with a low dynamic approach. Next, the band kicks in with a high energy groove for the interlude and bridge sections. The outro brings the dynamic back down and ends the tune off the tune nicely.

In the following lessons, we’ll talk about chord arpeggiation, open and barre chords, power chords, aggressive rock strumming, tasty rock leads, and dynamics. We are in the key of E minor, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 62 and 132 BPM.
