In this Jane Says guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play all of this Jane's Addiction acoustic classic.
The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E. However, many live videos I have seen of Jane's Addiction playing this song, have them tuned down a minor third to make the vocals easier to sing. But we will be covering the album version here, which is in standard tuning.
This song is pretty simple in that there are only a couple of guitar parts to learn. The main riff, which intros the song and acts as the song's verse as well, has a great groove to it. It is based around G major and A major chords with a quick little four note lick at the end. Getting the rhythm accurate is crucial here, so I will talk about that quite a bit in the video lesson.
There are a couple of guitars of the original recording and they are both playing different voicings of the G major chord. I will detail that as well in the lesson.
Overall, I think this is a great song to learn for just about any level of guitarist.
Have fun! Carl...
