Open Arms Guitar Lesson – Journey

In this Open Arms guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this massive hit by Journey note-for-note.

The tuning is standard tuning.

I have transcribed the opening piano part for guitar so that you can recreate this classic opening even without a piano/keyboard player in your band.

After that, I will cover all the guitar parts as they are played by the great Neal Schon. He uses some interesting chord voicings at certain points, and when I demonstrate those, I will also briefly mention the theory behind how those chords are derived.

I hope you guys enjoy learning this great song from Journey!
