One of Tommy’s biggest crowdpleasers, dissected for you from start to finish! Part 1 will cover the intro (with Tommy’s live build-up), the verse and a few variations on the verse. In part 2 I show you the chorus, a few of Tommy’s flashy licks and the full ending. Happy picking!

I’m a subscriber of several guitar channels, some of them have millions of subscribers but 90% of my time i spend here on Tim’s channel. It’s a surprise for me why so few subscribers here, you deserve hundreds of thousand at least. Thank you for your work! My guitar playing improved radically thanks to your channel. Wish you all the best and please stay with us!
