  • 0:06 - 0:10
    (Playing Aerosmith "Walk this way")
  • 0:35 - 0:36
    Hi how ya doin'? Justin here
  • 0:36 - 0:38
    In this lesson today we are going to be
    checking out
  • 0:38 - 0:40
    "Walk This Way" by Aerosmith
  • 0:40 - 0:43
    We are going to be looking at
    the main riff, as well as
  • 0:43 - 0:46
    the riff in the verse. Because a lot of
    people seem to struggle with that one.
  • 0:46 - 0:50
    Um, I've done quite a lot of research
    making sure that I get it exactly right
  • 0:50 - 0:53
    Um so let's get to it and check it out!
  • 0:53 - 0:57
    Okay we're starting here with an open
    "A" string (Play notes)
  • 0:57 - 1:02
    First finger goes down in the first fret
    of the third string
  • 1:02 - 1:05
    Slides it up to the second fret of the
    third string
  • 1:07 - 1:09
    and then we play the second fret
  • 1:09 - 1:13
    of the fourth string
  • 1:14 - 1:17
    and then the low E second time through
  • 1:24 - 1:28
    Second time
    (Plays guitar)
  • 1:32 - 1:36
    we got a little here second finger
    third fret of the thicker string
  • 1:37 - 1:41
    flick off to first finger second fret
    fourth string
  • 1:41 - 1:54
    (Plays guitar)
  • 1:55 - 1:59
    finishing off there that last time
    with a little "A" chord
  • 1:59 - 2:02
    0 2 2
  • 2:03 - 2:06
    one time, nice and slow
    all the way through. Here we go.
  • 2:06 - 2:08
    3, 4
  • 2:08 - 2:33
    (Plays guitar)
  • 2:34 - 2:36
    Okay the picking for the riff
  • 2:36 - 2:38
    Down, Up, Down, Up
  • 2:39 - 2:43
    Down, Up, Down Up, Down
  • 2:45 - 2:47
    Down, Up Down Up
  • 2:47 - 2:49
    Down Up Down Up
  • 2:49 - 2:51
    Down Down
  • 2:51 - 2:52
    Full speed
  • 2:52 - 3:03
    (Plays guitar)
  • 3:05 - 3:09
    Okay here we go looking at the verse
    riff for "Walk This Way."
  • 3:09 - 3:12
    It's eh, based around kind of a
    "C" power chord
  • 3:12 - 3:16
    We got out first finger sitting here
    at the 8th fret of the thicker string
  • 3:16 - 3:19
    and the third finger
    on the tenth fret of the fifth string
  • 3:19 - 3:20
    and they stay put for
  • 3:20 - 3:21
    pretty much the whole thing
  • 3:21 - 3:24
    so it turns out to be a little bit of
    a little finger workout
  • 3:24 - 3:26
    Uh, let me just play the riff for you
  • 3:26 - 3:27
    first of all so you could see
  • 3:27 - 3:28
    what's going on
  • 3:28 - 3:29
    Sounds like this
  • 3:29 - 3:29
    3, 4
  • 3:29 - 3:41
    (Plays guitar)
  • 3:41 - 3:44
    Truly quite specific,
    it's kind of on the record
  • 3:44 - 3:46
    you gotta really listen to it and get
    the accent right
  • 3:46 - 3:48
    so what notes are loud and
    what notes are quiet.
  • 3:48 - 3:50
    I'm gonna show you what the notes are
    but you're gonna have to listen
  • 3:50 - 3:52
    to get that other info.
  • 3:52 - 3:53
    So, what we got here is
  • 3:53 - 3:56
    (Plays guitar)
  • 3:56 - 4:00
    So first of all this is the root note of
    the eight fret of the thicker string
  • 4:00 - 4:04
    Three picks, so, Down Up Down Up
  • 4:04 - 4:07
    and then that last note there is
    the note "G", which is the
  • 4:07 - 4:09
    third finger on the tenth fret
  • 4:09 - 4:10
    (Plays guitar)
  • 4:10 - 4:13
    Down, Up, Down, Up
  • 4:13 - 4:14
    Up, Down, Flick
  • 4:15 - 4:21
    So, Down, Up, Down, Up
    Up, Down, Flick
  • 4:21 - 4:24
    (Plays guitar)
  • 4:24 - 4:32
    1 e & a 2 e & a
    1 e & a 2 e & a
  • 4:32 - 4:34
    I'm letting them all ring together
    there of course
  • 4:34 - 4:37
    But you want the
    (plays guitar)
  • 4:37 - 4:39
    Get that palm mute and it will
    really help with your accenting.
  • 4:39 - 4:42
    So, the first part
    (plays guitar)
  • 4:45 - 4:48
    The second part
    (plays guitar) we play, first of all,
  • 4:48 - 4:50
    the eighth down on the thicker string
  • 4:50 - 4:52
    (Plays guitar)
  • 4:52 - 4:53
    So we got here eight
  • 4:53 - 4:56
    then little finger's going on the tenth
    fret of the fourth string
  • 4:56 - 4:58
    (Plays guitar)
  • 4:58 - 5:02
    And then we're plucking the fifth string
    Down, Up, Down
  • 5:02 - 5:04
    (Plays guitar)
  • 5:05 - 5:09
    Then little finger is jumping
    right up to the thirteenth fret
  • 5:09 - 5:10
    (Plays guitar)
  • 5:10 - 5:13
    and I can't tell if it's a flick off
    or not. I think it's just play,
  • 5:13 - 5:19
    but thirteen, ten, twelve, flick off.
    Definitely that last one's
  • 5:19 - 5:20
    a flick off there
  • 5:20 - 5:23
    (Plays guitar)
  • 5:23 - 5:31
    so, Down Up Down
    Down Up Down Flick Off
  • 5:31 - 5:50
    (Plays guitar)
  • 5:50 - 5:52
    Okay joining the two
    together
  • 5:52 - 6:08
    (Plays guitar)
  • 6:08 - 6:10
    up to speed with a little bit of palm
    muting
  • 6:26 - 6:28
    Just really quickly
    the one little bit that
  • 6:28 - 6:29
    I haven't shown you that'll
    kinda get you pretty much
  • 6:29 - 6:32
    through the whole tune if I do
    is the chorus
  • 6:32 - 6:36
    which is a "C" power chord
    (plays chord)
  • 6:36 - 6:39
    and this little riff here
    which is nothing, nothing
  • 6:39 - 6:43
    seven, eight, ten
    and then nothing
  • 6:43 - 6:45
    on the thinner string
  • 6:45 - 6:48
    (Plays guitar)
  • 6:48 - 6:50
    then to a "F" power chord
  • 6:50 - 6:52
    (Plays guitar)
  • 6:52 - 6:57
    and then this is on the thinner 3 strings
    ten, ten, eleven
  • 6:57 - 7:02
    (Plays guitar)
  • 7:03 - 7:08
    um, and with that you've probably
    got most of the rhythm parts anyway
  • 7:08 - 7:11
    Um there's so great solos
    to transcribe in as well
  • 7:11 - 7:11
    a lot to be learned
  • 7:11 - 7:14
    it's a difficult tune to play,
    really well, this one
  • 7:14 - 7:16
    kind of an easy one to play badly
    if you like
  • 7:16 - 7:19
    but particularly that verse riff
    it takes a little bit of practice
  • 7:19 - 7:21
    to get it kinda right in the pocket.
    Don't really that I've got it
  • 7:21 - 7:23
    in the pocket yet, but i'm working on it.
  • 7:23 - 7:25
    So um, hope you've had fun with that
    and I'll see you for another
  • 7:25 - 7:29
    riff next week!
    See you later, Bye bye.
