Colors by Black Pumas

SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate

Black Pumas is an American psychedelic soul band based in Austin, Texas, led by singer/songwriter Eric Burton and guitarist/producer Adrian Quesada.

This is a great lesson for guitar learners of all levels as you’ll learn the cool intro intro using triads, flesh out the whole songs with chords all over the guitar neck and learn how to play around with the solos just using position 1 of the pentatonic scale.

The song “Colors” got a lot of attention when it was nominated for the Record Of The Year Grammy in 2020. It didn’t win, but Black Pumas got to perform it on the show and earned plaudits from host Trevor Noah, who said: “Ever hear a band for the first time but feel like they’ve been your favourites your whole life? That’s what we feel tonight.”
