In this tutorial I'm going to show you how to play the Cars famous song, "Good Times Roll". The Cars came out of the new wave scene of the 70s and this song is a perfect example of how they merged 70s guitar rock with 80s synth pop.

That leaves us with some very interesting guitar parts! Some are straight up rock guitar, and some are just there to add very interesting textures to the production. There will be a lot of very interesting rhythm arrangements between the different guitar parts.

The song is in 4/4 time signature at a tempo of 107 BPM.
