  • Hi GMC! Today we´ll have a lesson inspired on Keith Richards!
    To be honest, I’ve never been a great fan of Keith. Yes, I like the Rolling Stones, but I’ve never been really interested in Mr. Richards’s music. All of that suddenly changed when I had to play many of his songs, and I really started to enjoy his playing style.
    He’s got many inspirations from country music, and I like that.
    This lesson is in G major, a key very common to this guitar player.

    This is the chord progession of the backing track:

    (G - G - C - C) x 2

    (G - G - D - D) (D - D - G - G)

    (G - G - C - C - D - D - G - G)

    (C - G) x 3 (F - F - D - D)

    (G - G - C - C) x 4


    Mainly I use double stops and bends, and a lot of Rolling Stones’ licks.
    Richards’s style is like playing a chord melody; you must play like a base. Let ring the strings almost all the time.

    I hope this lesson gives you great SATISFACTION!!!

    Have fun!!!
