Lesson notes

Eat The Rich is a popular single off of Aerosmith's 1993 album "Get A Grip" and a fan favorite for their live performances. This song is a great example of that classic Joe Perry sound, revolving around riffs. This song in particular uses pentatonic modes, but he pulls off to open on the lower string to create an almost "walking baseline" sound, which is one of his signature moves. There's heavy usage of power chords and a lot of open strings and double stops that give it a great groove. You'll be using an open string pentatonic position that fits perfectly with pentatonic riffs, so once you get comfortable with this you'll be able to apply it to your playing and really get rocking!
