I Love Rock N’ Roll – Joan Jett Preview Guitar Lesson
I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll is a rock classic that Joan Jett made famous as a single in 1979. This is one of original rock anthems with a heavy four on the food beat that made this one great for dancing or head banging to. The guitar part is pretty simple and start, mostly revolving around open string power chords with a standard half bend on the minor third of the chord. The solo has some great musical qualities, revolving more around note choice and placement as opposed to guitar licks, utilizing the full range of the guitar from the low to high register, even including the whammy bar. It does have a fast 16th note descending line that might take a bit of practice to get under your fingers, but once you do, the rest of the song won’t be too hard to get down.
