Animal Guitar Lesson – Def Leppard

In this Animal guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this great song off of Def Leppard's Hysteria album in its entirety.

The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E.

Guitarists Steve Clark and Phil Collen were masters at crafting a slew of simple guitar layers to create a much more complex sound. However, this can present a problem when trying to perform the song live. So for that reason, this transcription is sort of in between the original studio recording and thier live "In The Round" performance from 1988.

Some of the sections needed to be stripped down a bit but the most important parts are still there.

I will go through each section of the song in the order that each appears on the original recording.

I hope you enjoy learning one of the biggest songs from the greatest era of music history, the 80's! Carl..
