Learn Highway to hell & You shook me all night long

Learn these two incredible songs by ACDC. They’re ‘simple’ with lots of cool riffs; but the devil is in the detail. We’ll review the techniques used and expand on any theory where it helps to give a better appreciation of the song.

Overview
These are relatively straight-forward songs but it’s all about how you play them. We’ll look at the entire songs with a focus on chords, groove and lots of cool riffs. It’s a mix of distorted open, power, sus and some other chords with a pumping rock drum beat. Lots to learn on this course including revising pentatonic patterns. If there’s time, we’ll also try to fit in as much of the solos as we can.

Number of lessons:
Two lessons, each 75 mins long.

Lesson format
We try to layer these lessons so that we cover off the more straight-forward elements early on and gradually build up to the more complex subjects. The bulk of each lesson is teaching (usually with a minimum number of questions taken along the way) but we dedicate the end slot for Q&A. With the lessons being online, assuming you are on mute, you can play along with our tutor or practise an exercise without interfering with anyone; if tutor asks, and you’re so inclined, you can go on-screen for one-on-one coaching in front of the group.

Follow-on materials
We’ve always recognised that the real work takes place after a course and so we provide a comprehensive set of materials for home practice; these vary from course to course and can include: additional PDFs, lesson TABs, backing tracks and snippet videos of examples/exercises used during the lesson. Over and above learning the song(s) our objective is to give you the tools to self-improve.

Course suitability
This course is for average-and-above players but it’s more electric guitar (check out our FAQs’ Skill levels and suitable courses). There’s something for everyone in all our courses and the follow-on materials should help in both practising the song as well as understanding and applying any techniques and relevant theory covered.

Bass players
This course, although not designed for bassists, is a fantastic opportunity for playing and practice. We do provide bass parts on some courses and always offer guidance as we go through the lessons but we don’t formally teach the bass; any interested bassists should contact us beforehand.

Call us for a chat at any time
Whatever level you are, you’ll have lots of takeaways to work on later. If you’d like to go through the course please call or email.
