...... Angus Young!


Attached Image




hi again, another lesson from me..

This time an "In the style of" lesson, I chose Angus Young purely because I was working on a riff for a little while and to me it sounded very AC/DC`ish, so I thougt I`d have a crack at doing an Angus Style solo over it, whilst I was working on this Ivan put up his AC/DC collaboration so I had to try and get this finished asap, you never know it may help?? smile.gif

Angus is a very bluesy, good old rocker style guitarist, not the most technical yet if you listen hard to some of his solo`s they are very good indeed, I guess that in the main as he`s running around the stage and throwing himself on the floor like a mad man possesed! his solos have to be fairly limited or else he wouldnt be able to do what he does, can you imagine Steve Vai. Malmsteen or Satch playing the kind of solo`s they do whilst bouncing themselves off of amp rigs etc laugh.gif

So lets dive straight into the lesson smile.gif

Pretty much most of the solo`s are Pentatonic or pentatonic minor based and the solo that I`ve done here I`m using Am pentatonic and Dm pentatonic for the key change in the middle.

Am Pentatonic

To try and keep the post a little shorter and make it easier to read etc, I`ve kept the tabs out of the post, instead I`ve supplied you the full tabs in the following formats, this should make it easier to read the tabs also.

Tabs

Attached File  Angus.gp5 ( 5.32K ) Number of downloads: 274

Due to my newness to GP5 I`ve used the program purely to tab out this solo, the note durations are not correct, however if you do play the file it does give you an idea of course smile.gif

Attached File  Whole_tab_Angus.pdf ( 96.26K ) Number of downloads: 494


I`ve broken the solo into 5 parts (the tabs when you open them are labelled accordingly)

Part 1 Attached File  Part_1.mpg ( 11.54MB ) Number of downloads: 404

You dont have to play this part with your fingers although I think it sounds better and gives it more of an "Angus" feel, a fairly straight forward little riff to play.

Part 2 Attached File  Part_2.mpg ( 6.67MB ) Number of downloads: 276

The starting two notes are probably the two notes I`ve heard the most of in Angus`s playing s I couldnt leave them out of this lesson! then a classic bluesy feel to the middle part.

Part 3 Attached File  Part_3.mpg ( 9.31MB ) Number of downloads: 305

Lots of alternate picking in this part with the beginning and the run up played on the G string, this run is very simple to play but looks effective as well as sounding cool.
(Quick apology on this video, I noticed at this posting stage I play the slow version incorrectly, by only playing the open G string once in between each other note, it should be twice as I play it in the fast demo and the main video, also the tab for this part is correct, I will rectify this video asap)

Part 4 Attached File  Part_4.mpg ( 7.9MB ) Number of downloads: 242

Another classic part to Angus`s soloing, he`s a very rythmic player imo and uses these types of techniques to great effect

Part 5 Attached File  Part_5.mpg ( 6.93MB ) Number of downloads: 278

A lick that again I hear in his solo`s a fair bit and its more about the rythm of the lick as opposed the amount of notes he plays, again all alternate picked.

Backing Tracks

Two backing speeds provided 100BPM (the normal speed) and 90 BPM

Attached File  Angus_young_style_lesson_backing_100BPM.mp3 ( 886.12K ) Number of downloads: 372


Attached File  Angus_young_style__backing_90BPM.mp3 ( 909.39K ) Number of downloads: 304




So, thats the lesson over, I hope you enjoyed it and thought that I`ve done Angus some justice as well.

Until next time
All the best
Chris smile.gif

Thanks Daniel,

Your right laugh.gif I was suprised at how heavy it was when I got it compared to other Strats that I`ve tried, but its a nice guitar, feels and plays great and probably the only strat I`ve tried that doesnt suffer too much with tuning issues when you use the trem.
