This is my second lesson covering a Bad Company song.
The lesson is ideal for a beginner/Intermediate to learn.This version is a mixture of 2 main guitars, as there where many studio overdubs in the original recording.
I have also kept the guitar guitar in standard tuning, in the original track guitarist Mick Ralphs, tuned his guitar in the open-C tuning C-C-G-C-E-C.
Ralphs stated that “It never really sounds right in standard tuning. It needs the open C to have that ring.
Appearing on the band’s 1974 self-titled debut album, it is their biggest hit and is considered their most popular song.
As a single, this song reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and #1 on Cashbox magazine’s Top 100 Singles chart. The song is also frequently played on classic rock radio stations.
