The Swish The Hold Steady

In this song tutorial, Henrik Linde will teach you "The Swish", by The Hold Steady. We'll look at the song as a whole and peek at the tones and gear, then launch into the intro parts for the 2 guitars. Next up is the jam section and the short lead part; Henrik will follow that with the verse and chorus elements. Then we're on to the mini solo, and the outro of the song. We conclude with a play along, then mute the guitar audio so you can jam with the band.
