Holy Diver Guitar Lesson – Dio

In this Holy Diver guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this Dio classic note-for-note.

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

The rhythm guitar parts to Holy Diver are technique wise, pretty easy to play. However, the way they are organized can be a little bit confusing. So I have gone through each riff in the order that each appears in the song and will help you understand all the various variations that are played throughout. It also helps to know the sound of the song really well!

I will also break down the solo note-for-note. This solo has some really cool licks in it and is very popular with classic rock fans.

This is one of the most requested songs here at GL365, hopefully you guys will enjoy learning this one.

Thanks! Carl...
