"Control Freak" is in Am with two guitar parts, inspired by Prince's song "Head." The background guitar part moves around the Am pentatonic in 4ths, filling in the holes between the drums, bass, and other guitar part. For the main part, we'll play around the hits of the first guitar part focusing on the rhythm of the song. Again, keep in the pocket with your right hand moving up and down.
