Glycerine Guitar Lesson – Bush

In this Glycerine guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play all of the chords to this classic ballad by Bush.

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

For the entire song, Gavin Rossdale uses four basic barre chords encompassing just two different shapes. We have the common F major barre chord shape that is played across six strings, and the more uncommon sus2 barre chord shaped played across five strings.

For many of the sus2 chords, Rossdale places the 5th of the chord in the bass, which gives the chord a fuller sound. I will explain this fully in the video lesson. He doesn't do this every single time, so that is something that you can freely employ whenever you want to.

I will cover each section of the song in the order that each appears on the original recording.

Have fun learning this beautiful song by Bush! Carl...

    Hey Carl – If you’re looking for other early 90’s requests, how about some Candlebox or Silverchair?
