“Slide” as made famous by The Goo Goo Dolls is a 90s era pop/rock radio hit that features plenty of melodic guitar.

Mike will show you the 2 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is an acoustic guitar that uses a capo and an alternate tuning to strum out the foundation of the tune. Guitar 2 is a light crunch electric guitar that adds some nice fills and simple chord strums to help build the arrangement.

In the following lessons, we’ll talk about alternate tunings, the use of a capo, chord arpeggiations, octaves, and a steady acoustic strum approach. We are in the key of G# major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 110 BPM.
