In this song tutorial, Henrik Linde will be teaching you "Helicopter", as made famous by Bloc Party. Henrik will start with a synopsis of the tune followed by a discussion of the tones and gear. Then we're off to the counter-melody licks in the intro and the verse elements, the chords and offbeat bar in the pre-choruses, and the octave lines in the chorus. The bridge here uses crazy noises with delay, and we also look at the additional guitars. Lastly is the play-along performance and the "muted guitars" jam along.
