Vance Joy "Mess Is Mine" / by Shawn Parrotte

In Vance Joy's "Mess Is Mine", a powerful, rocking, indie folk tune, we get a different taste of finger-picking and how it can be applied to combined time-signatures. The song switches from 3/4 to 4/4 back and forth through the main guitar riffs in a way that gives it a "stop and go" lilt. We hear the same thing in Passenger's work and recently in Hozier's tunes as well. If you want to learn how to play it, watch the video above and use the tabs below to get these lines down. They are super melodic and I hope you enjoy learning them!
