This Every Rose Has Its Thorn guitar lesson will show you note-for-note all of guitarist C.C. Deville's tasteful and melodic solos for this 80's classic.
In the first video lesson I will show you all the guitar chords and chord progressions used throughout the song. Most of this is acoustic based and very simple to play, but I will also show you the electric guitar parts used during the chorus as well.
The real fun begins in the second video lesson where I will show you note-for-note how to play all three of C.C. Deville's solos!
The intro solo is very blues based with some unison bends and quick legato licks.
The main solo contains a little bit more flash. It starts with a long bend that slides into another note. After that we have some very melodic musical phrases that resolve into a fast descending legato phrase. From there he goes into a simple melody containing many bar dives.
After this section C.C. Deville caps off the solo with a fast alternate picking lick straight out of the 80's shredder scene. The hardest part of this lick is getting it started. After that initial beginning, you will then come upon a repeated pattern that is more easy to understand and get under your fingers. I suggest you practice the opening few notes by themselves first and practice the pattern by itself as well before putting them together. I will show you in the lesson where the pattern begins and how to play it.
I will then finish out the second video lesson by demonstrating how to play the outro solo.
I hope you guys enjoy learning this 80's classic!
