  • ZZ Top is one of the most famous 3 piece bands in the world. Not only do they have the longest beards in the story of rock 'n roll, but their music has touched generations of music lovers. Today we will study a piece written in their style.

    The song is a typical blues in A. The secret to playing in the style of ZZ Top is to play with conviction and attitude believing in every note you play. Attack your notes with a strong picking technique and use precise bends with some left hand vibrato.

    All the licks are very usable in many different situations. Memorize everything and build speed gradually.

    Have fun!
