Hi everybody, it's Mike from Guitar Tricks, teaching you "Breakdown" as made famous by Tom Petty. This is a classic rock staple that features some tasty guitar licks and sparse but effective rhythm playing.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about power chords, dynamics, and playing to the groove of the rhythm section.

We're in the key of A minor, a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 114 bpm.
