The Ventures "Batman Theme"
The Batman TV show was a huge commercial success in the 60s. The quirky, fun surf-influenced theme song of the show made it a natural for surf guitar masters The Ventures to cover! Neal "Bruce Wayne" Walter picks apart this version, looking at the main bat riff, the breaks, the solo, and how to play the "batman" vocals on guitar. Wham! Biff! Pow! Get your Batman costume on, and get playing.
In this six lesson song tutorial, we'll learn the parts of the "Batman Theme", as made famous by The Ventures in the 1960's. You'll use your knowledge of basic pentatonic scales and box patterns, learn the simple chromatic hook riff that is central to the song, how the rhythm breaks work, how to play the simple solo, and how to voice the Batman vocals on guitar. We'll cap it all off with a play along to a custom "bat" backing track!
