The guitar solo enters after our second chorus, and you will also hear this same chorus over the double chorus at the end of the song. Starting off with some great single note lines, we work our way into some Boston style harmonies that are a key part to the bands sound. Here are some key points to help you nail those great sounding solo licks and harmonies:

1. This same guitar solo is heard during the solo section, and underneath the vocals during the double chorus at the end.

2. The solo start on a slide from G to D on the high E string, and than moves in various places on the neck; settling into a familiar E minor pentatonic shape.

3. The second guitar comes in with harmonies during the second half, playing a variety of fourths and major and minor thirds before entering the bridge.

4. This is great introduction to harmonizing guitar parts with another guitar player.
