In this Play With Me guitar lesson, I will show you how to play all of Nuno Bettencourt's insane guitar parts for this well loved song by Extreme.
The tuning is Eb standard tuning. That is, starting from the 6th string, Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb.
Well we certainly have our work cut out for us with this one. "Play With Me" became very popular after it's inclusion in the Guitar Hero video game series. It is the final song in the game, proving that this is a song for only the bravest of guitar players.
I will take you through each section of the song in the order that each appears on the original recording. From the opening lick based off of Mozart's "Alla Turca", throughout all of the hyperspeed blues based riffs to Nuno's otherworldy solo, it is all here. That is also why this video lesson clocks in at over an hour in length!
Nuno has been one of my favorite players since I was a teenager, so it is great to finally do a note-for-note tutorial on one of his greatest achievements.
Have fun, but don't hurt yourself! Carl...
