Learn how to play Weak on the Electric Guitar!
Weak was the 4th single of ‘Skunk Anansies’ album ‘Paranoid And Sunburnt’ (1996).
The Hendrix inspired major pentatonic guitar parts sit very well with Skins vocal performance.
In the video lesson Ace teach you the main riff and the solo to Weak, also check the acoustic version of Weak and the chords.
The main riff use Ace’s trusted VI – V – IV progression, adding licks in the G shaped major pentatonic to the C chord, very Hendrix, very nice.
The blues feel is there adding angst to the song.
Ace always played the solo differently every time they played it live.
As he explores his pentatonic shapes in Em he adds intervals to it, can you tell which ones?
Ace played his solos differently when he played live, keeping his performance alive.
Following the solo demonstration, Ace talks about the key things to consider when playing metal riffs.
Simplicity in riffs like this lead to clarity which works well in big venues.
This is another key to Skunk Anansie’s success.
