There are 2 clean electric guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 plays lower single note lines and chords while Guitar 2 plays upper string melody lines and chord stabs. Both guitars are carefully crafted and interlocking, and stay very active throughout the tune with a mix of staccato chords with quick changes, steady strums, and single note lines connecting the changes and sections. There is a lot to learn in this song from both parts!

The tune starts off with a quick riff from both guitars that is lifted from the end of each chorus. Next the verse kicks in and leads nicely into the chorus section. There is also a bridge that is played twice throughout the arrangement. The tune ends off by repeating the last 4 bars of the chorus through the fadeout.

This is a popular standard songbook song that focuses on the romantic vocals.
To play this tune using only one guitar, simply choose either Guitar 1 or 2 and play it all the way through.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about barre chords, double stops, and an aggressive strumming approach. We are in the key of G minor, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 164 BPM.
