Here’s a cool video that explains the music theory behind the song:
When I was in high school, this was one of my favorite songs to play. Especially the solo. Being able to play it made me feel like I was accomplished, because it’s sort of a complex solo that strings together all the different “boxes” you learn about when you’re just starting out with scales and modes and such.
I remember my guitar teacher transcribing this for me and teaching me how to play it, and it always felt like I really complex song.
