More Than A Feeling by Boston | rhythm solos & fills
An electric guitar lesson on how to play "More Than a Feeling" by Boston from their 1976 debut album.
In 1999 it was named the 39th best hard rock song of all time by VH1. It took Tom Scholz over five years to complete the writing and recording of this and five other songs from the album.
Arguably Boston's greatest song, this one's a real masterpiece. A lot of this part was originally played on a 12 string. Great writing, lyrics, amazing singing, awesome guitar parts, great drumming and flawless production.
When you really listen to this, you can tell an enormous amount of time and effort went into it
These videos cover the electric rhythm guitar parts as well as the fills and solos. Tom Scholz wrote a very melodic and memorable solo here and got just an amazing "wall of guitars" sound.
Almost every part is at least doubled and sometimes tripled with harmony parts. It makes for a huge and powerful sound.
The actual licks are not that tough, but it's the way it was recorded and the production that makes it sound so huge.
At one point I count 5 guitars playing the last lick of the solo, add those to the 2 acoustic parts and the 2 electric rhythm parts and yeah, that's a lot of guitars!
I hope you enjoy these tutorials. Cheers
