In this guitar lesson, now available on YouTube.com, Claude Johnson teaches some blues rock licks in the style of AC/DC.
Johnson starts off this lead guitar lesson with some licks from the song Back in Black, one of the most famous songs by AC/DC. The first lick is from the guitar solo which is based in E Minor Pentatonic. “If you're not familiar with this scale, I suggest you check out my Beginner Lead Guitar Course available at GuitarControl.com/lead,” says Johnson. The first note is an AC/DC signature lick; Claude frets the 7th fret of the third string and bends it down a whole step with some vibrato. Next he plays the 9th fret of the third string with his first finger and quickly hits the 12th fret of the third string and immediately follows that with the 9th fret of the third string again followed by the 9th fret on the fourth string and immediately back to the 9th fret of the third string again with a little vibrato. Next Claude moves up to the 12th fret of the third string with his first finger and plays a cool hammer-on/pull-off lick to the 14th fret that shifts to the 12th fret of the fourth string and finally ends on the 14th fret of the fourth string. Claude talks about how important it is to be able to play in multiple positions which will give you freedom to move about the fret board like a seasoned professional. This is a great beginner lead guitar lick that is also recognizable. Guitar TAB’s for this lesson are available at GuitarControl.com.
