Let's take a look at how to play the guitar parts heard during the intro, interludes, and verses of "Black Horse and The Cherry Tree." Throughout the sections of this song you are going to hear a simple two chord vamp, played in a "Bo Diddley" type New Orleans style (translated to the Scottish, of course;) There's some cool single note stuff that while very simple, is very essential to the drive and energy of this track, which is "orchestrated" using by the groove and percussive techniques rather than lots of chord changes.
