Use Somebody
Adam Stark teaches you how to play "Use Somebody” By Kings of Leon. "Use Somebody" is off the band's fourth studio album, Only by the Night, which was released in December of 2008. 
The song first started receiving heavy traction in the UK and Australia, where it was number one on the official Airplay chart for six weeks. Once it came to the US, the song really took off. It peaked at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, where it remained on the chart for 57 consecutive weeks. It peaked at number 1 on the Pop Songs Chart, won a Grammies for Best Rock performance by a Duo or Group, Best Rock Song, and Record of the Year, as well as a nomination for Song of the Year.  In addition, Use Somebody is only the 4th song in history to top the Mainstream Top 40, Adult Top 40, Alternative Songs, and Triple A charts.  

Adam plays a Gibson Custom ES-335 Block Inlay in the lesson.
