The guitar parts heard throughout "Don't Know Why" are played with a capo on the sixth fret. To start things off, I am going to break down for you the chords being played by the entire band so you can hear where these guitar parts are stemming. Where as the guitar parts do a great job of contributing to the arrangement you hear on the recording, to play them solo wouldn't necessarily let you hear the full chords being played.

Let's take a look at the song form heard in the "Don't Know Why" and what chords the whole band is playing around so you hear where the guitar parts are coming from, and perhaps you can try some ideas of your own. This song does a great job of showing how chords commonly associated with jazz can also work in a pop setting.
