The Boys of Summer

As made famous by: Don Henley

Lesson Info

In these eleven lessons, Anders Mouridsen will take you through the 80's classic "The Boys Of Summer", performed by by Don Henley. Anders will talk about the gear and tones, then teach you the leads that occur in the intro. Next up is the muted guitar in the verses, and the guitars in the chorus. We'll then look at more leads in the post-chorus, and the breakdown. There's some "seagull" effects that we'll break down, and some string scraping effects in verse three. We'll end the tutorial with the song outro, a play along performance, then a jam along.
