There is one acoustic guitar layer used in this song that mixes folk, bluegrass and country style playing. Any acoustic guitar is suitable, but one with a brighter tone will cut through the mix better.

You’ll need a capo placed on the 2nd fret to play along with this tutorial.

In the following lessons, we’ll talk about open chords, 3/4 time, and a steady boom chick strum approach. We are in the key of B major, with a 3/4 time signature, at a tempo of 168 BPM.
