Boulevard of Broken Dreams

We are playing “Getaway Car” up a major third to the key of E – The bridge will not have a key change (it will stay the same chord progression)

Click Link below for the transposed track:

Getaway car bridge is only Keys and vocals.  Mac Keep the back beat (beat 2 and 4) on the hi hat.  At the end of the bridge, Hazel count us back in “1 ,2 ,3 ” Mac hit the 4


Practice moving your power chords!  Since it’s pretty much always the same shape, it’s just a matter of moving it around the fretboard clean and smooth.

Boulevard Of Broken Dreams Lyrics


You are crushing!  Try really hard to keep our tempos where they start.  Even though the band might be slowing down or speeding up, try to strongly establish the speed of the song, and don’t let us accidentally fall away from that.  That’s a super power the drummer has to gain!



IMPORTANT:  Please check with Amy to make sure Getaway Car is in a key that is ideal for your voice.  I think you may do better with it if wee raise the key a little bit.  Please work on that with Amy at your lesson this week and let us know.
