This lesson and the original recording are in standard tuning.
The opening guitar rhythm will be the most difficult challenge for you in this lesson. The chords move around the fretboard very quickly and the aggressive strumming style needs to be precise as well. You will also hear this riff at the end of the song.
When we make it to the first verse, things get much easier with basic open position chords. Pay close attention here though, because the rhythm is slightly different on the original recording than you might have heard it played before.
In addition to that, I'll tackle the solo section which although very short has some cool chord work as well.
I hope you enjoy learning this fun and great rhythm guitar workouts from The Romantics.
