Sweet Black Angel > Intro & Chords

In this first lesson I demonstrate the tune and show you the basic chords to play the intro which will bring you to the top of the tune. Take your time with the intro and learn it well. It will give you a good foundation for learning the rest of the tune. Next week we will go deeper into the chords and start learning some slide riffs to go with the foundation we are building with the chords. I hope you enjoy this song.

Great Carlos Welcome back.  Feel free to post a video anytime.

@Carlos...you have the basic riffs together and you play them comfortably.  I can hear that you also have your own style, which is nice.  And thanks for signing confidently...many do not!  I would suggest that you slow the tempo down and that will give you more time and space to play the riffs.  I think that you should work more on the introduction or beginning...slowing it down will help what you want to come out.  Last but not least, your guitar sounds slightly out of tune.

Thanks Alex.  I'm really pleased with it.

It also has a LACE humbucker pickup, and it sounds really good loud and distorted.  It feeds back very easily, but one can use that to get really cool feedback effects.

Excellent!  Another slide song, one with lots of familiar licks from You Got To Move, and some cool new ones

Thank you Corey
