In this Pride (In The Name Of Love) guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play the Edge's guitar parts to this massive hit by U2.
The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E.
There is usually a lot going on guitar effects-wise when trying to transcribe a U2 song. The Edge is an absolute master at playing simple riffs through intense effect chains that end up creating a much more complex sound than that simple riff would of otherwise created.
So I will spend some time at the beginning of the lesson talking about how to achieve the tone that the
Edge uses in "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" since without a reasonably close approximation of that tone, the riffs won't sound correct.
After we get the tone issues out of the way, I will take you through every section of the song in the order that each appears on the original recording. The guitar lines themselves are pretty simple, yet highly effective.
I hope you guys enjoy learning this amazing song from the incomparable U2! Carl...If these free lessons help you, please donate to keep new ones coming daily. Thanks!! 🙂
