Everyone says its an easy riff but its the little petatonic run that trips me up...I cant find ANYONE on youtube playing it correctly i.e. with the timing BANG on and the phrasing of Angus.

even zack wyldes version doesnt sound right to me...anyone able to play it ? or have a link of someone who can ?

Pink !!? Oh well :D It is funny tho, that run is so simple but very hard to get right !

couldnt find Pinks version but found this version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrdCJM-EFas
plays the run pretty well but still not perfect!!

I'd love to hear someone other than Angus completely nail it then slow it down and show me what i'm doing wrong!!

yep thats a prick of a riff to get right,..one covers band i was in years ago we all lived in the same big old house and I can remember the arguments about that one,..
I have some friends that have an acdc cover band and the guitar player is great at that acdc stuff though i dont know if they are on the net ,.. but i will have a look when i get to work ,,..
cheers aaron

much obliged aaron....I used to play the bagpipes funnily enough.

Just slowed the lick right down with 'transcribe' software....still a bugger even to get it straight in my head!

heres the lick by itself and slowed down for anyone interested!

Count the beats, the lick starts on the 'and' of 3. I'd imagine a common mistake to make with the lick is accenting the 3rd fret B string, instead of the open, because the way you play two notes on each string instinctively makes you want to accent the first note played when moving strings. Imagine the lick as 2 sets of 3 notes, and you accent the first note of both.

the phrase is in 16th`s and actually starts on the e of 3,(3e+a)counted 3 e and a,
if you come in on the "and"(+) of 3 you will be a quarter of a beat out(too late).
the tricky bit to me is the last note fretted on the g string 2nd fret as there is a bend and quite wide vibrato.

Goddamn! its so tricky, I've never counted out beats, i always try and feel it first and just 'know' when to play, on this one tho i think i might start counting...

use a metronome and learn how to divide the beat(s),before long you will be "feeling" it rather than "thinking" it.

He mentions the 3e and a timing but it didnt sound right when he played it, maybe it needs the drums to make it sounds 'right'

soon as i think ive got it i will post it :P
