AC/DC - You Shook Me All Night Long

Hello there, guitar folks!

Here you have my first tune recorded, ever. I had to honor my guitar so here you have my attempt to play You Shook Me All Night Long. I started to learn it in module 8 and took me 3 modules to get reasonably good at changing between G5 and C to record it, but was totally worth it :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:.

Rock ‘n’ Roll :metal:

Hi @Rumil There is a lot to commend on that performance Edgar. Bravo and rock on.
Your have clean changes, good groove and it all hangs together really well.
My critique would be small though important for the fine detail.
You need to change some of the chord progression. After the first quick bounce between C, G and D when you then go between D and G (look between 20-22 secs then 28-30 secs) the order of what you have played needs to be rearranged. You go D–G–D–G–G.
That should be G–D–G–D–G
Check back with this lesson this lesson between 6:14 and 6:16
Another suggestion to focus on is tightening up the tempo when you get in to the picked chords with the bass runs on the A string. Your timing fluctuates just a little in those transitions. AC/DC are tight-tight-super-tight on timing so the best way to do this is, in my view, to play along with the song or a good backing track at least.
You’re doing great, keep it up.
:sunglasses:

Hope that helps.
Cheers :smiley:

Not bad at all Edgar, in fact great for your first time posting on here!
Yeah there are a few bits that Richard has already pointed out but this will improve given a bit more work.
Keep on rocking :metal:t2::metal:t2::metal:t2:

Oh my …:face_with_hand_over_mouth:. I totally missed that! I’ll check it and fix it for future performances. Really appreciate it 🙇🏻‍♂.

You are right. I should at least have used a backing track because is so difficult to do it without any reference. This is something I have to keep working on this song.

Yeah! definetly helps. Many many thanks, Richard. Very useful information

Cheers :slight_smile:

@Rumil Thanks for taking the advice in the spirit it was intended.

You can definitely play it at the full speed tempo, no problem so don’t slow the backing down unless you feel you absolutely must. Also, to perfect that section just play that section not the whole song.
