Lesson Info

Mike will show you the 2 guitars in this song. Guitar 1 is the lap steel part from the recording adapted for a standard tuned electric guitar. Guitar 2 is a clean electric rhythm guitar that plays the chords throughout. The intro kicks off the vibe with the verse progression played at a lower dynamic. Next are two verse sections that feature Guitar 1 digging into some iconic melodies. There’s also a bridge that builds the drama even further before the final verse winds it all down perfectly. This tutorials also includes bonus lessons that adapt Guitar 1’s parts for a slide. In the following lessons, we’ll talk about a 6/8 feel, barre chords, steady low dynamic strums, fingerstyle technique, and playing melodies in a singing style reminiscent of Hawaiian music. We are in the key of C major, with a 6/8 time signature, at a tempo of 81 BPM.
