In this Are You Gonna Go My Way guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play all of this Lenny Kravitz classic note-for-note.

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

This is a fun one! The main riff to "Are You Gonna Go My Way" uses a bunch of rapid bends, string skips and double stops to create a funky groove with a huge rock sound.

I will show you this riff and the octave up version that doubles it.

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

I will also show you how to play Craig David Ross' great solo. This solo can be a bit challenging and incorporates a lot of blues based rock licks.

I hope you guys enjoy this one!

    Hi Carl I would like to learn this whole song from you.But I don’t have a you tube account so I can’t like it, even though I do like it. I love the way you make it sound. Learning to play guitar from you is fun.

    Hi Carl,

    1200 likes for this awesome song. Any Idea when you will be able to teach it note for note?

    Thanks for the great work you do.
