In this video lesson we will take a look at the Led Zeppelin classic “Good Times Bad Times”.
“Good Times Bad Times” was the opening song on Led Zeppelin’s debut album in 1969.
The main riff that Jimmy Page plays during the verse of the song is actually quite busy and a nice challenge. That riff was actually written by bassist John Paul Jones and contains numerous fast string crossings utilizing primarily 16th notes.
In this Good Times Bad Times guitar lesson I will demonstrate how to get that main riff under your fingers quickly, in addition to all the other riffs found in the song.
We have quite a bit to challenge us here in “Good Times Bad Times”. Besides the first verse riff, will also have chorus chords that use the thumb to finger the bass strings. Also, the second verse has a different riff than the first and it requires you to play some very large and fast shifts.
Just break all of the riffs down into sections to help speed up the process of learning them. They aren’t very hard to understand, it just may take a bit of repetition to get them completely up to speed. Remember to always practice slow enough to keep it clean. Getting too fast too quickly only produces sloppy playing.
If you guys wanna learn the solos, and believe me they are EPIC, just let me know by liking this video lesson on YouTube. After it gets enough likes to where I think there is enough interest I will transcribe the solos in a video lesson.
I hope you guys enjoying learning this pretty challenging Led Zeppelin song. I will see you guys back here soon with the solo videos!
