My Sharona Free Lesson Video

Hey guys!  This was a fun tune to do for this page because even though I kept the tab true to the original, I decided to make it just a tad bit heavier.  

The guitar I am using in this video is a Donner DST-100 equipped with Elixir strings.  If you are looking for an entry level guitar, I highly recommend it because the price is tough to beat for the value that you are getting.  Not only is this a great guitar but it also comes with a clip on tuner, capo, extra strings, picks, gig bag, 5 watt amp, and a 1/4 inch cable.  These are all great things that a beginner must have to begin their journey.  Links are in the description if you are interested in checking out some awesome deals happening between now and July the 14th.  

Like always, I double checked all the positions that the musicians in this band used through some live videos.  Berton Averre wrote a killer solo for this song and he plays it pretty close to note for note in his performances.  I love how it’s phrased and how it picks up so much energy, climaxes, and then resolves.  Props to him for his work in this tune and I really enjoyed learning this solo in particular.  And I hope you have fun learning it as well!

Have I left out any legendary classic rock songs on this page?  Surely I must have.  Leave a comment below!

Tone ScreenSHots

Isolated TRACKS (mp3)

Here are the drums, bass and other background tracks to jam along to My Sharona. I've also included all of my isolated guitar tracks in case you really want to hear what's going on. Isolated tracks are normally very difficult to find online, and can be very helpful in cracking a difficult solo tab.
