In this tutorial I'm gonna teach you how to play the song "Mississippi Queen", as made famous by Mountain. This is a classic rock song, packed with great guitar playing. It's loosely based on a 12 bar form with a funky halftime feel, killer riffs and rippin' lead guitars.

First we're gonna break down the intro riff with the heavy vibrato, then the iconic intro solo, the riffs in the rhythm guitars and the rippin' and very melodic guitar solo. So much meat on this track! We're also gonna talk about gear and tone and how to imitate the sounds you hear on this classic track.
