Losing My Religion R.E.M.

Mike will show you the 2 acoustic guitars in this song. Guitar 1 adapts the mandolin parts, while Guitar 2 strums a steady foundation of open and barre chords. Any acoustic guitar is suitable for this song, but one with a brighter tone will help cut through the band a bit better. You could also play any of these parts on a clean electric guitar.
