Are You Gonna Go My Way Guitar Lesson – Lenny Kravitz

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.

    Carl , awesome video as usual , I just want to say thank you for all you’ve done for all the people who watch your videos . I’ve been trying to learn guitar for years but never having success , over the last 6 months I have learned more than I could ever possibly imagine from you , I am playing things I never would have imagined , you are by far the best teacher I’ve found anywhere . You also have great choices of music , all that being said I have a question , I’ve noticed you have no great white , creed or dokken , Any of those coming in the future ? If not , no biggie , I will continue to look forward to any lessons you provide .

    Thank you and please never retire ! Lol
