Learn To Play: Foo Fighters' "Congregation"

"Congregation," from Foo Fighters' 2014 release Sonic Highways, is a highly indicative of the playing and song-writing style of Dave Grohl. It's deceptively accessible, with simple chords, fantastic rhythms, catchy riffs and highly playable solo. This arena rock anthem exemplifies the classic Foo Fighters sound: melodic but hard, blending fuzzy riffs with grooving rhythms and an awesome, effective emotional buildup to the pounding, crunchy finish. "Congregation" is a fantastic entryway into playing Foo Fighters songs just like the Foo Fighters themselves would.
