In this tutorial I'm gonna teach you how to play the classic song "Can't Stand Losing You" as made famous by The Police. Like most other Police songs, this song features a lot of great guitar playing that is clearly influenced by everything from reggae to punk, rock and even jazz. The drums and bass play grooves that may be very different from what you are used to playing along with, so this song can also be a great rhythm and groove exercise.

We're gonna break down everything that happens on this song, starting with the aggressive reggae chords in the intro, then the rocking power chords in the pre-choruses, the chorus parts, the ambient harp harmonics in the breakdown, gear and tone and much more.
