Love Removal Machine Guitar Lesson – The Cult

In this Love Removal Machine guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this classic from The Cult in it's entirety.

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

The main riff that starts off this great song is based around major and sus4 chords. It is pretty simple to play, but there is a quick little burst in the strumming pattern that can be a bit tricky to get right.

The chorus moves around a quite a bit and has a bunch of moving lines that sort of flow around the chords.

The solo is classic Billy Duffy with lots of rock infused blues licks to get your hands on.

Have fun with this one!

    Hi Carl, you’re doing great work, much appreciated! I’ve been curious about lessons from The Cult. Have you ever considered doing tutorials for Sun King or Wild Hearted Son? I think they would be a lot of fun and that you would do an amazing job on them, like everything else you’ve done! Anyway, thanks for considering.

      Hey Rob! Yeah I would be willing to do just about any song as long as I get enough requests for it. 🙂
