  • Rhythmically, this song focuses on a simple concept inspired by John Mayer.

    The main trick is playing the harmony on beats 1 and 3 and slapping the bass notes with your thumb on beats 2 and 4.

    This tune can be very helpful for learning a cool fingerstyle, bending, phrasing, blues and country concepts.
