This is Part 1 (Preview) of the lesson on How to play “Alive” by Pearl Jam. I show how to play the Main Riff of the song (played by Stone). The Full lesson can be purchased HERE.
This is a lesson on How to play Wake Up by Mad Season. Although the chord progression is very simple, Mike is playing some tasty licks a’la Jimi Hendrix and also manipulates the dynamics of the guitar really well. The Solo is based solely on A minor pentatonic and it really fits the song. Check it out!
Here’s a lesson on How to play Spoonman by Soundgarden. Soundgarden are well known for writing really cool riffs (songs) with a twist. This one is no exception, the main riff is written in 7/4, but it’s pretty straight forward. The rest of the riffs are in standard 4/4 and are cool too. Check it out!
Alright, here’s a lesson on How to play Sunshine by the Almighty Alice In Chains from their album Facelift. Bluesy Intro hook, followed by a heavy syncopated riff, the chorus is heavy power chords and the bridge is arpeggiated chorus with a twist. Really cool typical rock song of the late 80’s, early 90’s. Check it out!
This is a lesson on the Solo section from Them Bones By Alice In Chains. The tricky 7/8 part does not get in a way, just gotta concentrate on the melody. Jerry is a Master at writing amazing solos for the songs. This one is no exception. I break down the solo into easily digestible figures, backed up with Tabs and slowed down examples. Enjoy!
