This song features two electric guitar layers. Guitar 1 plays a solid and consistent R&B style rhythm with a clean tone. Guitar 2 is the lead guitar adding cool fills and melodies throughout.

This song is essentially just one big R&B dance groove. Guitar 1's parts have to be really locked in with the other instruments for this type of song, since the rhythm and groove is crucial!

The arrangement in this song is very basic, with some cool chord modulations and a key change halfway through.

To play this song using one guitar, simply play Guitar 1 all the way through.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about barre chords, R&B style rhythm approaches, and some cool lead fills. We are in the key of G# minor with a half step key change to A minor, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 122 bpm.
