November 18, 2019

Hi, I’m Bobby crispy this video is [front] [row] guitar lesson series So today, I’ll show how to play knocking on Heaven’s door by guns and roses okay um So I’ll play the parts first and then I’ll show how they’re played note for note using the tabs above Okay, first of all for the guns N’roses version You tune your guitar? Half a step down to e flat So it’s top string e flat then a flat D flat G flat B-Flat You flat so here’s my a flat that string if you want to tune to it Okay, uh song [structures] pretty simple for most part it’s Mainly Edgy two beats D two beats See the four beats Well, that’s its structure anyway except for the verse is g 2 beats D for [2] beats a minor for 4 Beats It goes back to G for two beats D for two beats See for four beats you Okay, the guns N’roses version. There’s some finger picking involved first of all [I’ll] [show] the intro Okay, I’ll play it first you Okay, so that starts off as a g chord pic like First string second-string Third string open second string to a d chord [play] it as a reproduce. Just pick with your fingers in the pic so fourth string third string second first string and pull off from the second Second fret on the first string pull off the 2nd string 3rd 2nd string Just a C chord [which] [is] [played] [like] this So mainly it’s the [secor] that’s broken up into arpeggios. So it plated the middle two strings then hammer on fourth string the second fret fifth string third and second strings third fourth strength and first ring It’s a [4th] [3rd] and [2nd] string first Ring You play the middle two strings again. Oh open? like before hammer on to the second fret of the fourth string the fifth string third string Okay, so that’s the intro and the g d c– part through the song So it’s both okay for the verse [okay], I’ll play it first okay, so it’s a g chord for two beats a [D4V] And bottle string pull off in the second at first the second third second string is so the V part is It goes into an e minor chord the third string The second string open a hammer onto the first 3rd and 4th strings top string first string Ok that it’s 4th 3rd 2nd and 3rd strings the fourth string open hammer on to the simon Third string open after the fourth second fret three Shrink open So sure to pick a pattern through it. Yeah that song yeah like this So with the [pic] in your little finger your ring finger Okay, then the power [chords] simplest part of the song it’s g power chord two Beats first then D power chord fifth string fifth fret Do [beets] and see our core the fifth string third fret for Beach back to G and That’s the main structure of the song okay.
