Mike will show you a beginner approach to play along with the band using some simplified chords and straight ahead strumming.

The tune uses an iconic riff throughout the verse, and we’ll simplify the riff using a straight ahead chord progression. The pre-chorus and chorus sections ramp up the energy and dynamic with some ascending chords and stabs. There’s also an interlude in the second half of the tune that changes the pace with an extended solo. Our Made Easy version features a radio edit of this section.

Any guitar - acoustic or electric, is suitable to play this song.

In the following lessons, we’ll talk about power chords and a simple strumming pattern. We are in the key of G minor, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 148 BPM.
