Mike will show you the 2 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is a gritty electric guitar that lays into a high energy riff throughout the tune. Guitar 2 is an electric guitar tuned to open E with a capo on the 5th fret that adds some interesting guitar layers to the arrangement.

The tune starts with Guitar 1 playing the main riff of the song at a high dynamic. The verses are essentially a 12 bar blues form played in a rocking context. There’s a bridge section that is played twice to provide a great building of the arrangement. The solo features Guitar 2 digging into a country, rockabilly, and even ragtime influenced approach!

In the following lessons, we’ll talk about the use of a capo and open tunings, open chords, and high intensity strumming. We are in the key of A major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 90 BPM.
