In this Ace Of Spades guitar lesson video, I will show you note-for-note how to play this hard rockin’ classic by Motorhead.

A few days ago, the legendary Lemmy, the iconic lead singer and bassist of Motorhead passed away. I have been getting a lot of requests for this song this week so it looks like it is finally time to get some Motorhead on the site!

You will need to tune your guitar down one half-step in order to follow along with this lesson and the original recording. Those notes will be, starting from the 6th string, (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb).

There are some great riffs in “Ace Of Spades” and it simply never lets up. It is blast to play once you get everything under your fingers.

I will start the lesson by showing you the main riff followed by the verse section and all of it’s cool solo guitar licks.

As the lesson progresses you will quickly learn every little nuance of the song. The real star of the show here is the guitar solo which is chock full of killer guitar licks despite the short amount of time it takes up in the song.

Just like the riffs in “Ace Of Spades”, the guitar solo never lets up either, so you are in for quite a ride! However, it shouldn’t be anything that an intermediate level player can’t handle.

So I hope you guys enjoy this tribute lesson to the late great Lemmy. Be sure to play it loud and play it fast!
