During both verses, our acoustic guitar comes in twice to play a few slide licks to spice up these sections. We have one lick during the first verse, and another one during the second that's just a little bit busier.

During the first verse, the acoustic comes in simply playing a slide all the way up the G and B strings just before the beginning of the fifth bar. You will slide from A and E all way up to B and E.

During the second verse, the acoustic comes in in the same place just before the fifth bar but will play a busier melody then our first verse. You will do a quick slide down E on the B string, followed by a melody that goes from B to E to D and back down to E. You will follow that then with a slide from E to G.

These little embellishments create a nice change in the verses that keeps the slide guitar present and helps retain the really cool, bluesy vibe that you heard in the intro and interlude.
