This tune is Aerosmith at their very best, with an awesome riff, a great upbeat groove and amazing rock vocals from Steve Tyler. Ollie takes you through the entire song, and breaks down each section individually. Have fun!
For the main riff we are essentially using the E blues scale shape in position 1. Position 1 allows us to use the open strings, which creates a really thick sound, and a pretty easy to play riff! Here is the scale:
For the verse we are basically just playing around the C5 and F5 powerchords, with some cool bluesy additions. It's such a cool part, and Ollie walks you through it in detail. Here are the basic chord shapes:
This solo is a great example of how to combine your major and minor pentatonic shapes over bluesy or rock based riffs. Joe Perry is using the C minor pentatonic shape 1 (and blues scale) with the C major pentatonic shape 2. That's how he can create two distinct sounds over the same chord groove. The scales are shown below:
You've now completed and taken a huge step forwards in your guitar playing journey.
Feel free to bask in glory for a while, or go ahead and try another course if you're hungry for more.
