Magic Carpet Ride

As made famous by: Steppenwolf

Lesson Info

In this set of lessons, Tom Finch will join you on a psychedelic journey and show you how to play "Magic Carpet Ride", as made famous by Steppenwolf. Tom will get into the gear and tone, then show you how to play the intro noises; then he'll break down the classic rhythm riff in the verses and choruses. Next up is the moody post-chorus section, which leads us into the jam section and the call-and-response leads. We'll end our magic carpet ride with a play-along.
