Help with a song.

Post by phatboy » June 2nd, 2018, 6:27 am

First, I just want to say, Hi, My name is Matt from Florida. Thanks for letting me be a part of this. I have been playing around 6 years. I am pretty good with the majors below the first fret, I can solo on the pentatonic and have kind of learned the fretboard, just not fast, and am on bar chords now. But I haven't learned any songs yet.

I am trying to learn the song Jeremy by Pearl Jam. I believe the song has many guitars and many ways it can be played. I think it sounds best the way Boyce Avenue plays it in his youtube video. But I am having a hard time figuring out what he is tuned to and what exactly he is doing. It sounds and looks like drop A, but that can't be right. Can anyone help?

Hi phatboy,

I think its just in standard tuning. I gathered this from a cover of the song, where the guitar part sounds just like that of the original. I hope this helps.
