Ahh the nineties. The era when grunge came along and created pretty much a total musical revolution.

One particularly great band that was thrown into that grunge category was the Stone Temple Pilots. Their huge hit “Plush” was being played virtually on repeat on the airwaves.

In this Plush guitar lesson I am going to teach you this massive hit note-for-note in it’s entirety.

We actually have some interesting things to tackle in this lesson. There are some interesting chord forms, especially in the intro riff.

We do have a couple of barre chords to contend with including a major 7th chord form you may not be very familiar with. But overall “Plush” is relatively easy to play.

I teach the lesson on an acoustic since there was an almost equally popular aversion of the song they did on acoustic as opposed to the original electric guitar version.

In any case, guitarist Dean Deleo plays everything the same for both versions of the song. Feel free to use any guitar you like to play along with the lesson.

I do mention some rhythmic tips and the end of the video lesson that I think will help you if you have any trouble in that area. In fact, following those rhythmic principles should help you be able to play along with just about any song if you practice it enough.

OK have fun! Carl…
