There are 2 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is an acoustic guitar that lays a steady foundation throughout. Guitar 2 is an overdriven electric guitar that plays killer fills and some delay-soaked ear candy.

The tune starts off with a brief electric guitar solo that establishes the E minor mood of the track, and the acoustic laying down a smooth strumming layer that forms the rhythmic and harmonic foundation of the song.

The electric guitar adds some tricky effected flourishes in the chorus to tie in with the lyric. There are also some nifty well placed licks throughout the arrangement.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about open chords and barre chords, steady acoustic strumming with anticipated changes, and some tasty electric guitar lead fill approaches. We are in the key of E minor, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 130 BPM.
