Lesson notes

Wrong Direction is another great song by Passenger, a very talented singer-songwriter from the UK. It appears on his album ‘All The Little Lights’ which was released in 2012.

The song is in 4/4 swing time, features only four chords, and a very easy chord progression. The major challenge lies within the catchy intro, using slides, a pull-off, a few hammer-ons, and syncopated chord changes while slapping the strings on beats 2 and 4, giving it a percussive effect.

The latter continues throughout the whole song, which also includes a simple strumming pattern. The guitar is in standard tuning and capoed at the fifth fret.
