REM ” The One I Love ” is a really cool guitar song. It features a really melodic guitar lick that sounds great when you combine it with the chords. Although the intro part might be quite difficult, the chord structure is very easy and even beginner guitarists should be able to play it.
We will start this guitar lesson by analysing the intro lick. Remember that the best way to work on these licks is in isolation. Work on shorter pieces and don’t try to learn all the notes at once. Pick up 2 or 3 notes and try to integrate them together. After a while, add a few more. I explained this way of practising in the video lesson. In the second part, we will discuss the chord structure and how to strum this song.
