Watch the Straight Up - Rhythm online guitar lesson by Jeff Scheetz from Rock Solid
Some of the best songs are really simple. This holds true for most styles of music. If you look at a lot of the straight "rock" bands out there like the Tom Petty or old John Mellencamp type of stuff, it is just simple progressions with great melodies.
This song is no exception there. This is a very simple groove that we are going to change up a little bit and play a nice melodic solo over.
