Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith | rhythm
An electric guitar lesson on how to play the rhythm guitar parts to "Sweet Emotion" by Aerosmith from their 1975 album "Toys In the Attic."
This is arguably one of Aerosmith's greatest songs. It's based around that really cool bass riff played and written by Tom Hamilton, and although the guitar parts are pretty cool, the bass line is the feature of the song.
I put some bass on this, but a guitar player playing bass is just not the same as a real bass player!
There are some subtleties in the guitar parts that may go unnoticed by a lot of players so I've done my best to break those all down in the lesson.
The main guitar lick may seem pretty easy but to get the feel right and to play it clean takes some repetition. This is a really fun song to play in a band situation.
The chromatic break part, with the bass and guitars all playing the same lick sounds killer, and then when the harmony guitar comes in it really sails.
Great song by a great band and like most signature songs, you recognize it after the first couple of notes.
Good luck with the tune and I hope you enjoy the lesson. Cheers
