This song features 2 guitar layers. Guitar 1 is a gritty electric guitar tuned to open G. Guitar 2 is a clean rhythm guitar in the first part of the tune, then transforms into a killer lead guitar in the outro jam section.

The song consists of 2 distinct sections. The first section is the main part of the song, jamming on a gritty riff that forms the backbone of the verse section. The chorus of this section opens up to a different chord progression, but maintains the aggressive approach.
The second section of the tune is an extended jam outro, complete with sax and guitar solos. It takes the song into completely different territory, with an almost jazzy, double-time feel.

Guitar 1 is tuned to open G, while Guitar 2 uses standard tuning.
We've included a bonus lesson to adapt Guitar 1's parts for standard tuning. For the single guitar performance, you'll play Guitar 1's parts in standard tuning, then switch to Guitar 2 for the outro jam.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about dynamics, open G riffing, rhythm comping techniques, and some killer rock soloing. We are in the key of D major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 75 BPM.
