Mike will show you the 2 guitars in this song. Guitar 1 is a rhythm electric guitar that lays down a steady foundation for the tune. Guitar 2 is the lead guitar that takes the arrangement to the next level with some soaring soloing.

The tune starts out with the drums establishing a laid back calypso style groove. The verse kicks in to a simple progression with the rhythm guitar laying a solid foundation. This progression will also be used in the chorus. There’s a pre-chorus that sits between the verse and chorus perfectly. The lead guitar comes in halfway through and stays throughout, building the song to a higher dynamic level.

In the following lessons, we’ll talk about triads, suspended chords, syncopated strumming, dynamics, and some textbook pop rock lead approaches. We are in the key of D major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 78 BPM.
