In the style of Def Leppard

A little while back I remembered reading that someone would like a lesson "In the style of Def Leppard", I`ve been working a litle while on getting one to sound similar!

one of the biggest problems is how "produced" the Def Leppard sound is on their albums, for this backing I basically took some progressions from a couple of their songs and meshed it into something smile.gif

Its more from the Steve Clark(rip)/Phil Collen days in my opinion, anyways I hope you like, I gave it my best shot, I quite liked it as it was anyways laugh.gif

Not a difficult piece to play, so everyone should be able to have a shot at this one too smile.gif
