Hysteria Guitar Lesson – Def Leppard

In this Hysteria guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this great Def Leppard classic.

The tuning is standard tuning.

As with a lot of Def Leppard's music from this era, there are a lot of guitar layers all over the place. So with this lesson I am not going to cover every little guitar part heard on the original recording, but instead, focus on what they would mostly play live.

I will demonstrate each guitar part in the order that it appears on the original recording. I will also mention whether it was a Steve Clark or Phil Collen part.

This is just a great song that with a couple of guitar players you can do a great rendition of.
