Summer Of 69 Guitar Lesson – Bryan Adams

Well it seems summer has finally arrived and I think one of the best songs to celebrate with is "Summer Of 69" by Bryan Adams.

There isn't much to worry about with this one when it comes to any technical difficulties. I do arrange the keyboard part for guitar which may provide and additional challenge but even that is quite simple if you break it down correctly.

This Summer of 69 guitar lesson can easily be studied by every level of guitarist beginner to advanced.

In the video lesson I break down each section and end the lesson by showing you how to play the guitar solo. The solo itself is rather simple with some nice long bends that you will need to focus on to keep in tune.

This is definitely one you will wanna break out at the campfire or beach. Everyone loves it and it is a lot of fun to play as well.

I have played Summer of 69 100's of times in top 40 bands and it has always been a crowd pleaser. Hopefully you will get the same enjoyment out of it that I have. 🙂

OK strum away!! Carl..

    Hi Carl,
    Mark Daniel here. GREAT SONG FOR SUMMER. Totally Rocked! Sounds perfect on my Antigua from the summer of ’78.
    Thanks for all you do!

    Carl, you’re the best, Great song to play on the guitar. Didn’t think it would be so easy. Thanks also for converting the piano part.
    When will you do “worlds apart- separate ways” from Journey?? Soon, I hope

    This lesson is unavailable now, will it be returning later?

      Hey Chris, this sort of thing is out of my control. I have no idea why the songs publishers have blocked the video in the US. Hopefully it will return soon.
