Hey all, it's Mike from Guitar Tricks teaching you "Runaway", as made famous by Del Shannon. This is an early rock 'n' roll classic hit that features some iconic guitar playing.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about barre chords, arpeggios, and the distinct strumming pattern featured throughout the tune. We'll also learn the famous Musitron solo, which we've adapted for guitar!

We are in the key of A minor with a modulation to A major, a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 154 bpm.
