Rob, 42 from Norwich, UK. Huge AC/DC fan since about 1979. I've had a few attempts at learning to play over the years but only really started once I stumbled on Fils riff raff tutorial in late 2008. Now I play whenever The family permits!

    Thanks for the kind words guys. I’m a relative noob at guitar after only really getting into it after discovering Fil on youtube a couple of years ago. Now I wish I’d have started when I was younger, but better late than never.

    The only thing I have is that i know the songs well by now (makes up for my lack of any talent) but I’m having great fun playing along. All I do is listen a lot and try and get as close as I can within my ability and hope its ok. Having said that I’ve watched it again and I can hear I’ve made a heap of mistakes! plenty of room for improvement I think.

    Thanks again.

      Nice job, man!
      Similar background here… Fil should get a cut on guitar sales :)

        Thanks very much. Yes I think Fil has done much for the sale of SGs and to giving people the confidence to go on and be able to play along to the stuff they love.

        BTW I bought one of the Vox AC30 plugs after reading your review. I’m really pleased with it, thanks again!

    Very nice. I’m just starting out in my quest to do the same. Love the rhythn side of things and Malcolm’s style. Have a music background, but it’s been a LONG time and it wasn’t string instruments, but looking forward to learning and playing AC/DC, particularly the Bon-era stuff. Anyway, great job. Any advice?

      Hi coog,

      i used to play the piano before i got into guitar playing, My tip would be to play a song you like listnin to and dont be afraid to hit those strings 😉

      if you doing malcom stuff then id sugest watching the video posted by thundersnook (link below)

      http://www.solodallas.net/acdc-tutorial-malcolm-young-playing-tips-part-1/

      im about to post my cover of shoot to thrill with lead and rhythem did the video shoot today :) (bout 2 hours ago) playing malcom is a whole different world of me and its awsome when you get in the grove

    3rd time lucky!

    Wanted to do this as it was the first AC/DC song I ever heard. It was on TV in early 1980 (top of the pops.) I’ve been a huge fan ever since and I didn’t think I would be attempting to play it nearly 30 years later.
