Ziggy Stardust Guitar Lesson – David Bowie

In this Ziggy Stardust guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this great David Bowie classic in it's entirety.

The tuning is standard tuning.

For most of "Ziggy Stardust", there are some strummed acoustic guitar chords supporting the electric guitar parts. I will show both guitar parts, but focus more in-depth on the electric guitar parts played by Mick Ronson.

I will go through each riff in the song, in the order that each appears on the original recording.

Have fun!

    All the David Bowie lessons were great, Though I don’t think I’m quite ready for a few of them.
    Can you do a Rebel Rebel lesson? I know it’s fairly basic, but I would like to play it the way David Bowie Played it. Thanks for all the lessons. I am definitely going to extend my subscription.
