In this tutorial Douglas Showalter will show you how to play "Sold Me Down The River" as performed by The Alarm. This song features a single electric guitar in drop D tuning, using a biting tone with plenty of overdrive, compression and reverb. This guitar carries the song, playing a mixture of strong melodies, call and response licks, along with a really cool solo.
