Hungry Like The Wolf Guitar Lesson – Duran Duran

This Hungry Like The Wolf guitar lesson is gonna take you back to 1982 in style! The 80's, in my opinion, are the greatest time for pop music ever and Duran Duran have a lot to do with that.

These simple guitar riffs can be easily playable by even beginner guitarists. We will be using standard tuning.

The opening guitar riff is probably one of the most recognizable of the 80's era. It uses snappy open strings along with a catchy three note riff.

This riff is interrupted occasionally with an open D chord.

The chorus is simple power chords that support the catchy vocal melody and harmonies. You will hear that there is a lot of harmonic movement coming from the bass guitar line in the chorus while the guitar stays more static with simple power chords.

Have fun with this quick little guitar lesson of this 80's pop classic!
