There are 2 crunch electric guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is the rhythm guitar playing killer riffs and chords throughout, while Guitar 2 is the lead guitar scorching through some textbook high octane bluesy rock solos and fills.

This is essentially a 12 bar blues in E with space between the vocals for call and response parts and some bombastic lead soloing!

To play this tune using only one guitar, play Guitar 1 for all the rhythm parts, switching to Guitar 2 for the solo section.

This tutorial teaches the more well known live version of the song. We’ve also edited out part the intro to remove the lengthy banter section at the beginning and focus on the killer riffs and leads.

In the following lessons, we’ll talk about open chords and power chords, 9th chords, riffing with double stops, and some searing bluesy rock leads. We are in the key of E major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 170 BPM.
