Love Song Guitar Lesson – Tesla

In this Love Song guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this great song by Tesla in its entirety.

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

I will be covering all of the rhythm guitar parts using an acoustic guitar, even though those sections are played on electric guitar in the later parts of the song.

The intro section uses a bunch of overdubs to create a very nice and complex sound. I have decided to just stick with the original (main) guitar part here that Frank Hannon plays live instead of tackling all of the guitar harmonies and overdubs. So there will just be one part to learn for the intro.

The real stars of the show here, in my opinion, are Frank Hannon's awesome guitar solos. I will switch to electric and show you how to play each of these solos note-for-note in the second half of the lesson.

Have fun learning this great song from Tesla! Carl...

    Wow! What a fun one. You just took me back to my college days from the 80’s in the Sacramento area. Tesla has some great songs. I’m happy to see you bring one back to the forefront, Carl.

    I learned this on my own about 30 years ago and, as usual, had been doing several things incorrectly. Just didn’t sound quite right (excluding all the overdubs). Those little details you point out really helped improve it. Now I’m off to look for a double-neck and a half dozen or so other folks to play along with 😉
