Today we're going to learn how to play "Born to be Wild" as recorded by Steppenwolf in 1967. Written by Mars Bonfire, this high energy rock song is chalk-full of great riffs and is a perfect example of the guitar driven rock sound that Steppenwolf is well known for.

In this tutorial we'll talk about gear and tone, we'll learn the intro, the A & B verse, the pre-chorus, chorus and the slide melody. After all of that, we'll put it together and play with the backing track!
