Queen – Keep Yourself Alive Guitar Lesson

Queen “Keep Yourself Alive” guitar lesson. The next Riff of the Day uses the Fender Humboldt Hot Rod combo for pure EL-84 drive and a Mr. Black Tunnelworm for the essential tape flange tone in this tune. Brian May’s carefully orchestrated overdubs actually employ tape flanging from the studio and phase shifting, so we’ve set the Tunnelworm to not cancel out the signal entirely which in turn provides a sound that is on the border of phase and flange. The chugging rhythm is very important to this song as is the double stop bends where the G is taken up a whole step while the B thankfully go half a step to stay in key. The chorus is a simple D,G,D,A progression followed by a classic Brian May arpeggio in A. Enjoy your Riff of the Day guitar lesson!
