The intro starts off the song by establishing an awesome upbeat dance groove. There is a verse section with a simple chord progression as well as a bridge features a minor sound with a busier progression. There is also a breakdown section that is a great arrangement trick when the singer calls in the instruments one at a time!

We'll also include a bonus lesson to learn the iconic verse bass/piano line on guitar - a classic R&B riff every guitarist should know!

This song is all about the groove, supporting the singer, and getting people on the dance floor!

In the following lessons, we'll talk about triads, single note riffs, the backbeat, and the guitar utilized in a support role in the arrangement. We are in the key of Eb major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 168 BPM.
