Learn the theme song for Parks and Recreation on guitar

This post is a tutorial on how to play the theme song for Parks and Recreation on solo guitar. This is really hard for many guitar solo enthusiasts to play, so I've rated this solo at a 6/10 difficulty level. In other words, don't attempt this tutorial if you're brand new to solo guitar. If you have a great deal of guitar solos under your belt, perhaps around 30-40 of them, then give this solo a shot.

Full troubleshooting section included as well as video. Enjoy!
