In this lesson, we are going to take a look at how to play the most recognizable part of "No Rain;" the lead guitar melody. This part introduces the song and is playable by anyone at any stage of learning to play the guitar. This is followed by two melody parts that are played throughout the entire track. We have our verse melodies, and our chorus melodies. WIthin each of these we have some slight variations using bends and other techniques. Both parts are equally as important and really showcase Blind Melon's ability to write memorable hooks. An important point to not overlook with these melodies is that they go on even while the vocalist is singing, never conflicting at all with the melodies being sung.
