Sultans of Swing This is a minor key song. Most of it falls into the Aolean Mode. Again Start with the chords. We will work on the various parts.
You have choices on many of these. But it is best if you can get both down.
Get the Chords Perfect • You need to get the chords perfect before moving on. • Do them in both positions. • Be sure that you sing this song. Even if you can’t carry a tune sing. Listen to the record, the vocals aren’t as much singing as talking.
Notice that this is almost all chord tones!!! To play like the record you must use your fingers on your picking hand and not your pick. Some of the lines just can’t be played properly with a pick. Sound is also incorrect with a pick. Next couple of pages covers the main riffs done in this song. Work on them before putting the song together.
Note that you must work on this quite a bit to really get it. I have not included the solo yet but have the main idea in the riffs pages.
