In this Spoonman guitar lesson video, I will show you note-for-note how to play this massive hit by the legendary Soundgarden.

You will need to get your guitar into Drop “D” Tuning. That will be, starting from the 6th string (D A D G B E).

The opening riff uses power chords based off of the 6th string. The chords move around pretty fast and the entire riff has a really cool groove to it. Once you can feel that groove and get the one-finger power chord shapes under you fingers, it feels really good to lock into the groove. It is a lot of fun to play!

The chorus is made up of a catchy pull-off based riff. It makes for a great technique exercise as well if you need help with your pull-offs.

The main thing I will cover after these riffs will be Kim Thayil’s guitar solo.

For those of you familiar with Kim Thayil’s guitar style, you would know that he likes to create solos that sound like he is just going for it but at the same time can be very musical.

This type of playing can be a little hard to recreate note-for-note due to the nature of how it is played, but you can get pretty close.

I will take you through that solo phrase-by-phrase so that you will fully understand what Kim Thayil is doing during the entire solo.

I hope you guys enjoy learning this classic from Soundgarden. RIP Chris Cornell! #spoonmanguitarlesson #soundgarden #chriscornell #guitarcovers
