Lesson Info

In this song tutorial, Douglas Showalter will be teaching you "Runaway Train", by Soul Asylum. First off is an overview, then a look at the gear and tones. Then we'll break down the intro and the first couple of verses; the pre-chorus; the chorus; and the bridge. Next, Douglas will get into the final verse, and the outro of the song. For the finale we'll do a full performance play-along, then mute the guitars so you can play by yourself with the backing track.
