We will be using standard tuning for this lesson, just like the original recoding.
For most of the song, you will hear multiple guitars playing at the same time. I will show you how to play those parts but also demonstrate a good way to play the song with just one guitarist.
The intro starts about with some major and minor chords voiced across strings 1-4. These chords have a very fun rhythm to play.
The verse section requires some pretty accurate alternate picking since you have to go from a quirky little picked riff into full chords pretty quickly. But once you lock into the rhythm, it is very fun to play.
The chorus is a little more laid back rhythmically but the chords still change pretty rapidly.
In any case, I hope you guys enjoy learning this 80's classic!
