In this Down Under guitar lesson, I will show you how to play this catchy hit by Men At Work.
We will be using standard tuning for this lesson, just like the original recoding.
For most of the song, you will hear multiple guitars playing at the same time. I will show you how to play those parts but also demonstrate a good way to play the song with just one guitarist.
The intro starts about with some major and minor chords voiced across strings 1-4. These chords have a very fun rhythm to play.
The verse section requires some pretty accurate alternate picking since you have to go from a quirky little picked riff into full chords pretty quickly. But once you lock into the rhythm, it is very fun to play.
The chorus is a little more laid back rhythmically but the chords still change pretty rapidly.
In any case, I hope you guys enjoy learning this 80's classic!
