There are 3 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is an acoustic guitar with a capo at the second fret that forms the strumming foundation of the tune. Guitars 2 and 3 are clean electric guitars that add some iconic unison and harmonized slide licks.

The tune starts off with a bold strumming pattern on acoustic and a simple chord progression. Next, Guitars 2 and 3 enter the mix with some melodic slide licks that lead into the vocals. There's also a full step key change halfway through that plays the same progressions in the new key.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about the use of a capo, open chords and barre chords, diminished chords, a steady strumming pattern, and some iconic slide licks. We are in the key of D major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 120 BPM.
