Lesson description: I love The Police! The interaction between Sting, Copeland, and Summers is eternally some of the coolest jams around. Copeland is always on the front side of the beat, pushing everything forward, while Summers hangs back, with his glassy chords and arpeggiation. Sting is the glue between those two, perfectly carrying the bass duties, as well as delivering the goods melodically. Friggin' magical, man.
I plan on doing some more vids specifically about Andy Summers's approach, but I wanted to kick things off with this sprint of an arrangement. I perform it here at 180bpm, but I highly recommend practicing it at say 140. There's quite a bit of right and left hand muting, string targeting, and finger stretching to work on!
