AC/DC Artist Study: Welcome

Previous Lesson
Next Lesson

In this tutorial we're going to study the guitar tone and playing style of the legendary classic rock band AC/DC. AC/DC’s legendary sound is built on the foundation of brothers Angus and Malcolm Young’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 brother’s style by breaking it down into several key factors, learn what makes them special, and then we’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.
