In this A Tout Le Monde guitar lesson, I will show you how to play this Megadeth classic note-for-note.
This tutorial is based off of the original recording of "A Tout Le Monde" from their 1994 album Youthanasia which is tuned to Eb. That will be, starting form the 6th string, Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb. Make sure you are listening to that version and not the 2007 version which is in standard tuning.
When it comes to Megadeth's music, I think this is one that is going to be a little easier to play than most. All of the rhythm guitar parts are quite simple and even Marty Friedman's solo keeps his otherworldly guitar chops considerably in check until the very last lick of the solo.
I will demonstrate each section of the song in the order that is appears. There aren't tons of riffs coming at your from everywhere through the song like a lot of Megadeth, so it should be pretty easy for you to get everything memorized and start playing along.
There are couple of the riffs that contain two separate guitar parts. I will demonstrate the lower guitar part first followed by the higher part.
The harmony section at the end of "A Tout Le Monde" also contains two separate guitar leads with an underlying chord progression. I will once again show the lower lead line (played by Dave Mustaine) first, followed by the higher lead line played by Marty Friedman.
I hope you guys enjoy learning this Megadeth classic!
