We Die Young Guitar Lesson – Alice in Chains

In this We Die Young guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this killer song from Alice in Chains note-for-note.

The tuning is dropped C# tuning. That is, starting from the 6th string, C# G# C# F# A# D#.

Guitarist Jerry Cantrell has some great riffs in this one. He has a very unique guitar style and comes up with some of the coolest riffs in hard rock history. The riffs in "We Die Young" are no exception. They sound massive while always retaining this eerie quality about them.

I will demonstrate how to play each of the riffs in the order that each appears on the original recording. I will also demonstrate how to play Jerry Cantrell's solo note-for-note.

I hope you guys enjoy learning this Alice in Chains early classic! Carl...
