Wait by Maroon 5 Guitar Lesson for Beginners

I am completely obsessed with Maroon 5's new album, Red Pill Blues! 
I am a long-time Maroon 5 fan and I can honestly say that I have not loved an album from them as much as I do Red Pill Blues since Songs About Jane! Red Pill Blues is a new sound for Maroon 5 with Adam Levine's classic vocals and a different, more modern sound from the band! There are soooo many groovy songs on Red Pill Blues, so expect a lot of lessons from this album, but for today we are tackling Wait!
