In these video guitar lessons we will take a look at AC/DC's timeless classic "Highway to Hell" in it's entirety note-for-note. The first video covers all of the riffs in the song. As far as AC/DC goes, you will probably consider "Highway to Hell" to be one of the easier songs of theirs to play when it comes to the rhythm guitar parts. The way I am fingering the opening chords in the video lesson might feel a bit awkward at first, but in this Highway to Hell guitar lesson series I wanted to show you exactly how Angus Young plays it himself. The chorus consists of big open chords played in a tight rhythm. Make sure you focus on being very precise with the last two chords in the progression because those changes need to sound very tight. The second video lesson will demonstrate how to play the guitar solo. The guitar solo for "Highway to Hell" contains mostly blues based licks with not a lot of guitar pyrotechnics going on. Angus Young usually throws a few fast licks into his solos but he chose to lay back a bit with this one and just play blues based licks that compliment the song well. Don't think that the guitar solo is easy though, because it certainly isn't. There are a lot of bends to contend with and your calluses are going to get a good workout when practicing it. The main thing to mastering the solo is to not only practice it phrase by phrase, but to also pay close attention to the way the solo licks fit into the groove of the song. Focusing on the rhythmic element of the solo will help you lock into the groove better and memorize all the licks with ease. Angus Young's soloing style is a bit different than the average blues based player. His solos are almost always composed compositions that contain a lot of melodic ideas that compliment the song well. This type of soloing style is not only very musical, but it also aids in memorizing all the licks since they are pretty much singable throughout. All in all, the solo that Angus Young created for "Highway to Hell" is a great one to study if you want to learn to craft a highly musical and melodic solo statement even if it is just over a few basic chords. Have fun guys! Carl...

    I like your tutorials because they are direct and complete. A lot of these tutorials are too slow and they ramble too much. Thanks.

    So did Malcolm play the chorus part during Angus’s solo to end of song? I can’t quite make it out. I got the intro down, working on cleaning up the chorus. :)

    Another great lesson from you. Played it constantly for about 20minutes and now it's sounding good. Using the pinky was a bit wierd for me so I used my ring/long finger instead for the riff.
