Jet City Woman Guitar Lesson – Queensryche

In this Jet City Woman guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this awesome song off of Queensryche's Empire album note-for-note.

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

"Jet City Woman" is full of really great dual guitar work with excellent riffs, unique chord progressions, tasteful yet flashy solos and just overall great vocal and guitar hooks throughout.

I will cover each section of the song in the order that each appears on the original recording. It is a rather intricate song in how it is laid out.

Chris DeGarmo has some really cool solo work in this one that I will cover phrase-by-phrase. Chris Degarmo and Michael Wilton made up probably my favorite dual guitar team of any rock band. Just some great writing and so many great albums under their belt.

When it comes to Chris DeGarmo, it is hard to find a better songwriter in all of rock music. Just give the albums, Operation Mindcrime, Empire and Promised Land a listen if you want to hear what I mean.

Have fun cranking through this one!

    It’s about time you decided to do more Queensryche! Take Hold of the Flame would be a really good one to do. There’s no really good lessons on that song.

    Take Hold of the Flame, please!
