Lesson notes

This is one of AC/DC's most popular songs, heard all over the radio and in almost every setlist they played! You Shook Me All Night Long from their massively successful1980 release "Back In Black" is a really cool jam particularly because it incorporates suspended chords. AC/DC has a knack for blending suspended chords with the major form of the same chord for an interesting effect. this one has a repeated riff that's used throughout the song and is very rhythmic and based on having a lot of space around the chords. Without having that empty space, this song loses its groove, so it's a very good song to practice your locked groove and learn to play in the pocket.
