Lesson notes

Highway To Hell is a hugely popular song from AC/DC's album "Highway To Hell" released in 1979. This one incorporates a pretty tricky strumming technique in your fretting hand. You'll need to wrap your thumb over the top of the neck and use the rest of your fingers to get these chords fingered right, which is a pretty common Angus Young guitar move. In the true AC/DC style, this song's also got a bunch of open and power chords to rock out on. The guitar solo has a great lick that revolves around a very common blues guitar pattern, but with a classic rock, Americano blues shape on the neck. There's a lot of blues bending in this one as well which will be great practice for expressive playing, so lets get going!
