Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds "Up Jumped the Devil"

Lesson description: Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen: The Holy Trinity of Dark Songwriters. For those of you who follow my channel (thank you), you already know how much I love the Tom Waits/Marc Ribot combo. Similar in alchemy is the Nick Cave/Blixa Bargeld team. There's something truly special that happens when those two magnificent doom weirdos get together.

I've always wanted to figure out that opening piano riff on guitar, and once I got started the whole arrangement followed pretty quickly. Watch out for tricky muting, syncopations, and a few Ribot-inspired turnaround licks.
