Mike will show you the 2 electric guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 has a gritty rock tone for playing the rhythm riffs throughout. Guitar 2 uses a beefier tone for the leads.

The song opens with the iconic, bouncy single note main riff punctuated by powerful chord stabs. The prechorus ramps up the energy and dynamics with a rising chord progression that eventually crashes back down to the main riff. There’s also a bridge that features some great licks, and an extended interlude section that features the main solo of the tune.

In the following lessons, we’ll talk about octaves, barre and power chords, syncopated strums, dynamics, and some killer rock licks. We are in the key of G minor, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 148 BPM.
