In this tutorial we're going to study the guitar tone and playing style of the legendary classic rock band AC/DC. AC/DCâ€™s legendary sound is built on the foundation of brothers Angus and Malcolm Youngâ€™s playing. Angus played lead, while his older brother Malcolm handled the rhythm guitar parts. Combined they were the perfectly blended one-two punch of all the classic AC/DC rock tunes! Their playing styles were firmly grounding in the early rock & blues rock of the 60s bringing those traditions to the present and expanding on them into the future!
We'll study the Young brotherâ€™s style by breaking it down into several key factors, learn what makes them special, and then weâ€™ll learn to play some riffs & licks in their style.
This tutorial will cover the basics of their gear and tone, the rhythm riffs, and the lead licks.
