  1. Is this song about a man thinking he's with a women but actually a dude?

  2. nailed it – as usual

  3. Great Lesson! Justin explains it all very clearly and simply. I've watched many guitar how to videos and he's the best I've seen/heard. Love the look and sound of the guitar he's playing on this Lola song. Anybody know the make and model?
