We are going to have two videos for this one. In the first lesson I will show you all the chords and guitar fills used throughout the entire song. I have also arranged the opening keyboard part for guitar in a pretty easy play fashion.
In fact, this opening keyboard part works very well on the guitar. You will have to play and lot of bar chords, but other than that, nothing is very challenging at all.
After that, the actual guitar parts come in with the full band. Most of the guitar lines are power chord based and there are some crafty little guitar fills thrown in there to keep everything interesting.
In the second video lesson I will show you note-for-note how to play the guitar solo. This solo contains a lot of very melodic guitar lines using everything from bends, slides and some muted arpeggio picking.
After this melodic sequence, the solo ends with a very climactic alternate picked guitar ascending guitar lick that will definitely be the most challenging part of the solo.
The real key to mastering this fast lick is to be able to find the pattern that is being repeated within it. I will demonstrate in the lesson how to identify this pattern, which is simply repeated 3 times, and practice it on it's own making learning and memorizing this lick much much easier.
Once you have the pattern down you will easily understand how to play this section. You will also learn how important it is to find the patterns that are usually being used within just about any fast licks you may comes across. Rarely is it just a random collection of notes.
So I hope you enjoy learning this smash hit from the hard rock eighties!
