There are 2 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is the main clean guitar that plays arpeggios, single note lines & chord stabs throughout. Guitar 2 is an overdriven guitar that blasts some arena sized power chords and a killer outro solo.

The song kicks off with an arpeggiated riff that appears throughout the song. The groove kicks in to a simple chord progression that makes up the verse. The chorus section introduces a busier chord progression to perfectly compliment the catchy vocal melodies.

Later in the arrangement, the chorus introduces some cool chord stabs from Guitar 1 to build things nicely. There is a bridge where Guitar 2 provides some high dynamic power chords to the mix, and a solo section where Guitar 1 takes the punchy chord stab approach to the next level.

There is also a climactic outro solo that features some great licks and melodies to end off the tune right!

To play this tune using one guitar, simply play Guitar 1 throughout, switching to Guitar 2 for the bridge and outro solo.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about arpeggiated riffs, double stops and triads, power chords, and some great rock soloing approaches. We are in the key of D major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 112 BPM.
