“Jump In The Line” as made famous by Harry Belafonte is an early 60s R&B Calypso pop classic that features some great acoustic rhythm strumming and lead melodies.

Mike will show you the single acoustic guitar layer used in this song. Any acoustic guitar is suitable, but one with a brighter tone will cut through the mix better.

In the following lessons, we’ll talk about barre chords, seventh chords, calypso rhythm approaches, muting chords, and single note lines. We are in the key of F major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 116 BPM.
