“Baby I'm A Want You” as made famous by Bread is an iconic 70s laid back pop ballad with a pristine studio sound featuring some solid acoustic strums and electric fills and leads.

There are 2 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is an acoustic guitar that lays down a smooth strumming layer that forms the rhythmic and harmonic foundation of the tune. Guitar 2 is a clean electric guitar that adds some great supporting parts in the way of tasty fills, lead solos, and chord strums.

The song opens with a brief electric guitar melody that establishes the mood, while the acoustic lays into some steady, easy-going strums of the chord progression.

The verse continues the vibe with some smooth acoustic strumming and the electric playing some tasty fills and chord strums. The bridge opens up with a minor sound and some dramatic strumming. There is also a guitar solo as well as an outro solo that mimics the vocal melody and adds some nice licks.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about barre chords and open chords, extended chords, steady acoustic strumming, dynamics, and some clean electric lead and fill approaches. Tune your guitar down one half step to play along with this tutorial. We are in the key of A major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 72 BPM.
