In this Blackout guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this Scorpions' classic, note-for-note.
The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E.
During the intro section and the verse sections of "Blackout", Rudolf and Matthias play seperate riffs that compliment each other really well. Matthias' parts are quite a bit more difficult to play and contain a lot of fills.
The pre-chorus and chorus sections have each guitarist playing the same riff together.
I will go through each riff of the song in the order that each appears. I will also be demonstrating each fill that Matthias plays throughout the song, mostly during the verses.
I will then tackle Matthias' solo note-for-note. There are a lot of tricky licks in this one, so I will break it down phrase-by-phrase.
Have fun learning this Scorpions classic! Carl...
