The tuning for both guitars will be dropped "D" tuning. That is, starting from the 6th string D A D G B E.
Throughout the entire song we have two separate guitar parts that come together to create a very full sound. I will generally show you the lower guitar part first followed by the higher parts, played by Mike McCready that work over it.
I will go through each section of the song in the order that it appears.
There are also a few sections of the song that lead guitarist Mike McCready plays a series of fills throughout the verse and at the end of the song. I will tackle those one-by-one.
I will also show you the album version of his killer guitar solo. I say album version because the official music video for the song had a different solo on it because it was from a live performance.
I hope you guys enjoy learning this incredibly cool song from the great Pearl Jam!
