Get my brand new FREE series: Acoustic Guitar Jumpstart

“Home Sweet Home” by Motley Crue is considered to be one of the greatest power ballads of all time. In this guitar lesson, we’ll be learning to play an acoustic version of the iconic song. Since we’ll be playing the piano part on our guitar as well, you should be prepared to use both strumming and fingerpicking techniques throughout this song.

Many of Motley Crue’s songs were played in D standard tuning; however, we’ll be using E standard tuning here so you don’t need to worry about altering anything on your guitar. As you move through the lesson, you might find a few new chords and shapes, so be sure you download the PDF sheet music to help you follow along.

Add this version of “Home Sweet Home” to your daily practice time and work towards executing all of the different parts perfectly. If you enjoyed learning this song, you might want to dig into some other Motley Crue tunes as well!

  3. Hey, me again. 56 yrs without guitar in my instrument bag of tricks.
    Getting better. Suffering a "trigger finger" on the left hand. Age man, it's not for the young.
    As a keyboardist sorting covers I learned that pop piano composers are lazy and do the simplest changes possible given their hand positions. I tried to apply this to guitar chords and lo and behold the more complex sevenths, ninths, inversions and suspends came naturally trying to simplify chord changes.
    Wish I did this 40 yrs ago. Foolishly, I only had experience with a classical guitar. If I was (going back 40 yrs) Charro or Jose Feliciano, fine, but I wasn't. I wanted to do what Roy Clark could do. Play anything on guitar. I'm dedicated to going there now. Your tutelage inspired that.
