There are 2 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is an acoustic guitar with a capo placed at the 5th fret that plays a cool blues intro and rhythm guitar throughout the rest of the tune.

Guitar 2 lays down some slide in an open D7 tuning throughout.

This tune is essentially an upbeat, swinging 12 bar blues! The song opens with a brief bluesy intro before launching into the blues groove that's played for the whole song.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about steady acoustic strums, the 12 bar blues form, open and barre chords, and some nifty slide work in an open tuning. We are in the key of D major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 130 BPM.
