Hey do you think it's easier to play on an acoustic than electic?

RkmSkmRobots says:

Hey man, just got back into throwing my axe, fucking love the jumpstart to my heart you provided here. Getting involved with some buds and looking forward to playing songs about girls and cars!

RAZR says:

I don't own a guitar I'm just in love with the riffs from that time so here I am. Good stuff!

DannyWilliamson74 says:

I wish my strat sounded that good, are you using a pedal?

Tony Wilson says:

Love your video's , your sense of humour is so funny man. Don't forget White Lion…. Vitto Bratta really set the bar high when he came on the scene.

Cheers keep the 80's metal alive!!!!!

Hey I liked your video I'm 13 and staring a band we are planning on an 80's hard rock style or maybe a classic rock sound this helped me a lot on putting some riffs together for the band m/

His Overlord Upon High says:

Fun-nee. Thanks Papa. I love it.

Iron Feliks says:

Great lesson, I like the style you teach in that you don't mindnumbingly over explain, you just let stuff fly. Lots of these videos have people teaching intermediate stuff in the beginner fashion…oh yeah, you forgot Skid Row…

Texman4268 says:

KC Murphy says:

No one seems to have guessed it yet so I'll say it…. Modern Day Cowboy by Tesla.  Rock on.

Great idea with the humbucker in the strat. That was really big in the 80s and was used by eddie van halen and jake e lee.

L.D Gaming says:

Good try but it isn't really hard rock it's more rock

For learning licks you are my favorite. I love the 80's hard rock and metal. I am trying to learn how to lead and finally can learn from guys like you to make it fun and easy on youtube. Thanks for sharing your experience and entertaining us in the process. Its funny that you can put a song together in 10 minutes.Thats pretty Beef!( thats awsome from the 80's). Thanks again.

Alan Rocks Music City says:

I recognized it immediately.  Perfect 80's style.  Thanks Papa, for another great instructional video.  Incidentally, everyone was trying to figure out the opening riff…. it was Lay it Down from Ratt.  Sweet!  m/
