Long-time Guitar World Associate Editor, columnist and transcriber Andy Aledort masterfully teaches you how to play like the legendary Angus Young of AC/DC. He does this in the most effective way possible—by looking at Angus' playing style and techniques, as featured on five classic AC/DC songs: "Back in Black," "Highway to Hell," "You Shook Me All Night Long," "Hell's Bells" and "For Those About to Rock."
While "Bull Angus" didn't do a great deal commercially, it garnered generally favorable reviews from the critics, leading Mercury to finance a second album - 1972's 'Free For All' produced by Vinny Testa including a cover version of The Beatles 'Savoy Truffle', and supported the likes of Deep Purple and Fleetwood Mac. Their brand of post-psychedelic heavy blues successfully crossed between Southern rock jam and budding Prog.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again… killer rhythm chops gets you the gig every single time. Players with blazing lead chops are a dime a dozen today and most of them skipped all their rhythm classes to develop those chops. Their loss is your gain. Bandleaders, jammers, singer-songwriters, musical directors and the like will always pick the solid rhythm player over a skilled lead player. So yeah, its all about rhythm. Angus organized this Survival Guide curriculum into two main sections. In the first section, Angus will guide you through 22 essential concepts and techniques. In the second section, you’ll play your way through 17 rhythm studies that Angus prepared to cover a wide variety of feels and grooves.
