This is an absolute masterpiece of how guitar, drums and bass can work together to create an unbelievable groove. Thomas takes you through every single part of this tune, including the main riff, chords and even solo.
The main riff is based around an Em, D, Bm and C major chord. Thomas walks you through all the notes in the track very carefully, but if you are unsure they are all pictured on the fretboard below.
When we hit the chords we move into barre chord shapes, which are shown below (including a very cool C Major 7th chord that you may not have used before.
For the rhythm in the chorus, we are very much using a 16th note groove that involves pushing in the 2nd and 4th chord. The rhythm on paper looks like this:
When we get to the bridge, we are using the same harmony as the verse, but we use full barre chords alongside the upbeat reggae rhythm. The chords are as follows:
For the solo, we are using the E minor pentatonic-based around shape 5, 1 and 2. These shapes are shown below. Remember to always try and match the shape with the lick!
