Below is the lesson for “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns ‘N Roses.
An electrifying, fingerstyle take on one of classic rock’s most enduring hits; our arrangement covers all the melodies you love, including the epic guitar solo! First off, there’s a lot to this arrangement; as such, I’ll be splitting it up into 3 video lessons:
Part 1 Covers: Riff, Bass Solo, Verses 1 & 2, Chorus 1
Part 2 Covers: Verse 3, Chorus 2
Part 3 Covers: Uke Solo (Part 1), Outro
The lesson videos will focus on two BIG areas that will set you up for success in learning this tune. The two areas are: Choosing the correct fingerings to use, and understanding the rhythms that you are playing. In regards to the latter, there are two ways that we’ll be tackling this area: By counting rhythms, and playing rhythms by ear.
