  1. Hey, how are you doing?
    Justin here.
  2. In the lesson today, I'm going to be
    teaching you 6 Angus Young style riffs.
  3. Like rock lead guitar riffs. A lot
    of Angus's style is built on blues.
  4. They're essentially blues licks
    from kind of, you know,
  5. Chuck Berry, T-Bone Walker,
    Albert King kind of style licks,
  6. but played a little bit
    heavier, a little bit faster.
  7. So what I'm going to do is-
    Yeah, there's 6 licks.
  8. I'll just take you through
    them one at a time.
  9. Lick number 1 sounds something like this:
  10. ♪♪
  11. A little bit slower:
  12. ♪♪
  13. Let's check it out in the close up.
  14. Lick number 1, nice and slow:
  15. ♪♪
  16. Using my 3rd finger here:
  17. 5
  18. 8
  19. 5
  20. 7
  21. 5
  22. 7
  23. 5
  24. 7
  25. Roll, back and plenty of vibrato.
  26. I've got a whole lesson on this rolling
    technique if you're struggling with that.
  27. Pick, pick, flick, and it's
    important to realise that this
  28. note here is the note
    that's on the beat, so it's:
  29. 3 -- 4 -- and a-
  30. ♪♪
  31. So make sure you've kind of sussed
    that out because it's a good one
  32. to be practising repeating
    along with your metronome.
  33. Just make sure you're
    there with the rhythm.
  34. 3 -- 4e - and a 1e -
    and a 2e - and a 3 --
  35. 4e - and a 1e - and a 2e - and a 3 --
  36. ♪♪
  37. Lick number 2 sounds something like this:
  38. ♪♪
  39. Bit slower:
  40. ♪♪
  41. Okay, let's check it out as a close up.
  42. Okay, lick number 2 nice and slow:
  43. ♪♪
  44. That lick again:
  45. 2 -- 3 -- and - 4 - and -
    1e and a - 2e and a - 3e and a - 4e
  46. 1 -- 2 --
  47. ♪♪
  48. Making sure you tone bend,
  49. drop it down,
  50. tone bend with vibrato.
  51. Then we've got here 8-5 flick off.
  52. 8-5 again, but picked.
  53. Now I usually pick,
  54. pick,
  55. flick.
  56. ♪♪
  57. Pick,
  58. flick off,
  59. pick, pick, pick, pick,
  60. flick off.
  61. ♪♪
  62. Another little roll in there.
  63. ♪♪
  64. Yeah,
  65. 5
  66. 7
  67. 5
  68. ♪♪
  69. Lick number 3 sounds likes this:
  70. ♪♪
  71. But of course it tends to get
    repeated a little more, the first lick.
  72. ♪♪
  73. But I've just put a little tag on it.
  74. Little bit slower:
  75. ♪♪
  76. Okay, lick number 3:
  77. ♪♪
  78. Now this first part gets repeated a lot.
  79. Now I've just written it out
    2 times officially for the lick,
  80. but of course you would do
    it as many times as you like.
  81. It's this:
  82. ♪♪
  83. Now some people might prefer
    to do the bend with a 3rd finger.
  84. ♪♪
  85. I don't recommend doing bends with the
    4th finger, only with the 3rd finger.
  86. So, I mean you can if you like. It's up to
    your style, it just doesn't work for me.
  87. So, if you're going to do this
    style with your 4th finger here:
  88. ♪♪
  89. You'd probably swap over your 3rd finger
    for the bend, doesn't really matter.
  90. I suspect Angus's is going to
    be doing it here with a 2nd finger:
  91. ♪♪
  92. Making sure that you get that full tone.
  93. ♪♪
  94. So it ends up being the same as
    that note on the second string.
  95. ♪♪
  96. Lick number 4 sounds like this:
  97. ♪♪
  98. Very bluesy lick.
  99. ♪♪
  100. Let's get to a close up.
  101. Lick number 4:
  102. ♪♪
  103. So here we're starting off with
    a tone bend on the 12th fret:
  104. ♪♪
  105. A little triplet chromatically
    down the blues scale:
  106. ♪♪
  107. Now we've got a little 5 notes
    over the space of 4 rhythm.
  108. ♪♪
  109. Basically, what that's meaning
    is that this little passage here:
  110. ♪♪
  111. Finishes with this note on the beat.
  112. You can use hippopotamus or university.
  113. Hip-po-po-ta-mus
  114. U-ni-ver-si-ty
  115. If you want to get your group of 5 there.
  116. Hippopotamus or university
    have 5 syllables, so you'd have:
  117. 1 -- 2 -- 3 - trip-let - hip-po-po-ta-mus
  118. And bringing this back
    onto the beat there,
  119. but it's really a blues riff so you
    can play with the rhythm there a bit.
  120. ♪♪
  121. Just play with it.
  122. ♪♪
  123. Lick number 5 sounds like this:
  124. ♪♪
  125. Now this is another repeating lick.
  126. This bit:
  127. ♪♪
  128. Can get repeated as many
    times as you like, and
  129. ♪♪
  130. just finishing it with that really.
  131. You can pick every note:
  132. ♪♪
  133. or do them all as flick offs:
  134. ♪♪
  135. Of course you can probably
    get it a bit faster with the flick offs:
  136. ♪♪
  137. but it doesn't quite have as
    much guts if you do it that way,
  138. and of course that-
    This one can go right up the neck:
  139. ♪♪
  140. There's lots of different variations
    that you should play with, of course.
  141. Okay, lick number 5 here we've got:
  142. 8
  143. 7
  144. 5
  145. over and over again:
  146. ♪♪
  147. Now if you pick every note it
    sounds a little bit more aggressive:
  148. ♪♪
  149. but you can always do pick, flick, flick:
  150. ♪♪
  151. You could use those fingers if you want.
  152. ♪♪
  153. And this lick definitely works
    if you move it up 12 frets
  154. so your 1st finger
    will be on the 17th fret:
  155. ♪♪
  156. And of course alternate picking:
  157. ♪♪
  158. Important thing with a
    riff like this is to work out
  159. how to get out of it because repeating:
  160. ♪♪
  161. you'll find fairly straight forward,
  162. but then you've got to
    figure out how you'll finish it.
  163. Now, probably the most
    most obvious one is:
  164. ♪♪
  165. putting a bend on the end, or:
  166. ♪♪
  167. sliding up here:
  168. ♪♪
  169. is quite nice up to the 10th fret
    with a 3rd finger, 2nd string.
  170. ♪♪
  171. Also gets you to the next position
    which is quite nice, or:
  172. ♪♪
  173. you could put a bend on,
    wouldn't really matter.
  174. Lick number 6 is kind of a country
    style riff that Angus uses quite a lot.
  175. I'm going to show you one way of
    playing it, which is going to be this:
  176. ♪♪
  177. But make sure that you understand
    the kind of idea of having this
  178. 12 fret bend and then adding
    the other note together:
  179. ♪♪
  180. Very commonly done in AC/DC stuff,
    so make sure you check out
  181. lots of variations of this yourself.
  182. And I'll also show you a quick
    close up of how to do the same lick
  183. ♪♪
  184. further up the neck,
    so we'll have it here:
  185. ♪♪
  186. and up here:
  187. ♪♪
  188. Both essentially the same thing.
  189. Okay, lick number 6 here:
  190. ♪♪
  191. Now I'm showing you the one
    I've tabbed out for you is this:
  192. ♪♪
  193. but there's loads of variations with this.
    The concept that I'm trying to get you
  194. use to here is bending this 12th fret:
  195. ♪♪
  196. and then sneaking
    little finger underneath:
  197. ♪♪
  198. You can hold that little finger
    down and play it. It's quite nice.
  199. ♪♪
  200. And really muck about with
    that quite a lot, it's nice.
  201. ♪♪
  202. Essentially what we're doing, just so you
    understand the kind of theory behind it.
  203. ♪♪
  204. As we're bending, we're really reaching
    these 2 notes here which are 14th and 12th
  205. Which are essentially
    part of little A-chord there.
  206. A-shaped bar chord.
    That's why the lick works.
  207. ♪♪
  208. Or:
  209. ♪♪
  210. Now exactly the same note can be
    found further up the neck here,
  211. putting little finger on the 17th fret:
  212. ♪♪
  213. And bending the 16th fret up a tone:

  214. ♪♪
  215. Well I hope you've enjoyed playing around
    with those Angus Young styled licks.
  216. The big deal here is to
    make sure that you practice
  217. variations of them, don't
    just learn like a set lick.
  218. And what I really recommend that
    you do is that you get a backing track
  219. of some sort of blues
    or rock backing track
  220. and then practise using each of the licks,
    one at a time, and experimenting with
  221. how you play it, so you
    learn variations of it.
  222. And then try to mix it in with all
    the other licks that you know
  223. so play one lick then go into this
    new lick, deliberately, kind of thinking
  224. about it and play the lick and then
    go on back into your regular playing.
  225. Try and get that new lick
    in as many times as you can.
  226. Now that's a little bit conscious. In
    real life it shouldn't happen like that,
  227. you shouldn't really be thinking much at
    all, just be feeling and doing.
  228. But in order to get that way,
    to get it kind of instinctive
  229. you need to have practised
    these things a whole lot.
  230. It's that repetition that kind of makes it
    natural for you to do those kind of licks.
  231. So practise, consciously, thinking about
    it, trying to get those licks in as best
  232. you can and as often as you can
    and probably what you'll find is
  233. the ones that kind of naturally
    fit with your style of playing
  234. that'll come out on their own without
    having to think about it. And the ones
  235. that maybe don't fit so well with your
    natural playing style - maybe you won't
  236. play them so much, but that's
    cool because they weren't the ones
  237. that were naturally right for you
    so don't stress about it, you know.
  238. It's lot's of good fun.
    Plenty more AC/DC licks.
  239. Highly recommend the "If You Want Blood
    You've Got It" live album by AC/DC for
  240. licks stealing, cause it's live and
    Angus's guitar is really kind of clear
  241. in the mix and it's quite an
    easy one to transcribe from.
  242. Not too much production
    kind of covering things up.
  243. Really raw and lots of really
    proper blues lick in there,
  244. so check that album out - that would
    be a highly recommended one.
  245. But remember, transcribing
    is the way forward.
  246. Don't just be getting licks from
    me and off tab books and stuff.
  247. Try and get into working out stuff by ear
    because you'll learn it loads better
  248. and you'll really get inside it and
    you'll pick up the vibrato better
  249. and the styling of it, the
    rhythms of it and everything else.
  250. Cause remember, music is about
    listening not about reading.
  251. Anyway, have fun with all of that and I'll
    see you for another lesson some time soon.
  252. Take care.
  253. Bye.
