Walk This Way Guitar Lesson Videos – Aerosmith

In these Walk This Way guitar lesson videos we will break down every part of this classic Aerosmith track.

The main riff is instantly recognizable to just about any fan of rock music. Although quite simple it is very effective. The verse guitar part is a bit more challenging with sixteenth note rhythms and large stretches but is a great study in blues influenced rock rhythm playing.

In the chorus I show you how to combine all the recorded guitar parts together to sound like the record but still playable with one guitar. 🙂

Of course no Walk This Way guitar lesson videos would be complete without the solos. The second video tackles the two solos in Walk This Way. Joe Perry incorporates some pretty slick moves throughout both solos so it will be well worth your while to check them out!

Have fun with this one guys!

Cheers! Carl..

    Hi again Carl,
    Thanks a lot for this and all your other awesome lessons – I will be signing up for your website soon. I was wondering if you would be up for making a lesson for ‘the top gun anthem’ by Harold Faltermeyer and the epic Steve Stevens

    Greetings from Denmark

    Thanks for the great lesson Carl.
    I was wondering if you were going to ever do a lesson on Sweet Emotion By Aerosmith. It would be pretty awsome.

    Carl, Thanks for all these lessons! Wish these were around when I was young and learning… way back in the ’70’s (we didn’t have internet back then) You have a great ability to play and teach, a unique combination. Thanks again, I’m learning so much from you.

    Please Make a lesson that is Fight the Good Fight, By Triumph

    hey carl:
    Does your Stratocastor have a “Satin Finished” Maple Fingerboard, or does it have that glossed lacquer clear coat on top of the maple? I wanted to know because the strat I just bought has a maple fingerboard with that glossed clear coat on top, and I wanted the satin finish. I have been playing rosewood fingerboards pretty much my whole life and I wondered what you thought of the clear gloss coated maple fingerboard, if you have that kind or not? I’ve had this new guitar for just two days, and I am planning onreturning it tomorrow morning. However, it plays good, and it sounds amazing. I’m really trying to decide if I could ever get use to it with this type of glossy covered maple fingerboard? What do you think, Carl?

    • Carl Brown on December 17, 2016 at 12:45 pm

      Hey Tommy, my strat is an EJ signature model which had a pretty thick neck finish on it as well.

      I eventually had the neck finish removed and replaced with a tung oil finish. It gives the neck a really natural wood feel and looks cool to. I share your distaste of a heavily glossy maple fretboards. 🙂

    Hey Carl,
    It’s Tommy Rad. The last time i replied to you was about a guitar technique that was from
    a player that was so impressive that I learned most of his song, but asked you tp help me with the amazingly fast triplet, type arpaggios. you said send you the name of the song and guitarist. It is, “Ceremony” by an fairly unknown musician, named Jamie Humphys. The fast parts are want I’m trying to figure. I have most of the song. It is a beautiful song for sure.

      Can you send me a video link with the exact minute and second mark you want to know about?
