Wild Side Guitar Lesson – Motley Crue

FavoriteLoadingBookmark this Lesson.

In this Wild Side guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play all of this great Motley Crue classic note-for-note.

The tuning is D Standard tuning, meaning that every string is tuned down a whole-step. Those notes will be, starting from the 6th string, D G C F A D.

The opening riff is instantly recognizable by any 80's rock fan and is pretty tricky to play at full speed. The key here is to treat those fast 16th downstrokes as just quick speed bursts while relaxing the picking hand when doing the slide and the hammer-ons.

The verse is very easy to play and the bridge probably won't give you much trouble either.

So make sure you practice that main riff/chorus and you should be good to go!

Have fun!
