Poison – Nothin’ But A Good Time Video Guitar Lessons

"Nothin' But A Good Time" by Poison is a classic hair metal song that has become sort of a fan favorite. Perhaps it is because of the fun and catchy main riff that cleverly uses triads voiced high up on the fretboard or maybe it is because C.C. Deville displays almost his entire bag of tricks in the solo.

Within the solo he plays fast scale sequences, legato phrases, warp speed blues licks, whammy bar dives, fast rockabilly inspired licks and more. Yet, he makes it all sound musical and exciting which makes the solo an great study for those players trying to tastefully incorporate fast playing into their style.

So I hope you have fun learning this classic pop rock tune, I have to admit it is kinda hard not to be smiling while playing it. Good luck!! 😀

    Carl what are your amp settings for this tune? Trying to find a blanket setting for 80’s hair bands…
