Mary Jane’s Last Dance Guitar Lesson – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

In this Mary Jane's Last Dance guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this great song from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in it's entirety.

The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E.

Most of the chord progressions in "Mary Jane's Last Dance" are pretty basic, however, there are quite a few variations and embellishments thrown in there to keep things interesting. I will demonstrate all of those variations so that you can freely use them where you want, which is how it is performed on the recording and in live performances.

Guitarist Mike Campbell adds some additional fills along the way and a very nice solo. I will show you the main fills and the solo note-for-note.

Tom Petty also has a nice solo towards the end that I will cover as well.

Have fun with this great laid back rock classic! Carl...
