As made famous by: Tom Petty

Lesson Info

"Refugee" is truly a classic song, made famous by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in 1979. Great songwriting and guitar playing, along with great taste in arranging. We'll be looking at the form and chords of the intro, verses, pre-chorus, chorus, and bridge. Also, we'll look at how Mike Campbell lays down some very complimentary licks and melodies without interfering with any vocals or any other instrument in the band and simply adds a really nice vibe to the song.
