Post's music has been described as a "melting pot of the country, grunge, hip-hop and R&B" and Post himself has been described as versatile. His vocal style has been described as laconic. Jon Caramanica of The New York Times described Post as "an artist who toes the line between singing and rapping, and hip-hop and spooky electric folk". Malone himself has called his music "genre-less".
This super cool song combines relaxed chill out instrumentation with a quick and quite intense rap from Post Malone. The combination of the two sounds give the track a really nice summer feel, and as guitar players we can learn from the main harmony behind the rap, which essentially just consists of two chords! Simone skill-fully breaks it down for you in this Psycho guitar lesson.
This very fast paced, upbeat tune is great fun to play on the guitar! We can put the capo on the 3rd fret and play the whole song using open chords. Simone will take you through the chords, rhythm and everything else you need to play this tune.
These days it can be quite rare to have a pop song written totally around a rhythm guitar track. The acoustic guitar is beautifully recorded and has a combination of beautiful 7th chords and a cool little melody line which is so much fun to play. We would pitch this song somewhere between beginner and intermediate as it does feature some more challenging chord shapes. No matter your level, give it a try!
This track further cements Post Malone as a songwriter and vocalist. It once again again has a different feel and vibe to his previous tracks, and the combination of a deep R&B bass and tranquil keys with a cool chord progression make for a really laid back and cool song. In this lesson we will learn how to emulate those chords and rhythm of the track on acoustic guitar.
