Here's how to play Won't Back Down by Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers!
This video is party of the Andy Guitar Band Program where after following the tutorial below you can jam along to a full live band with Andy in the video!
This aims to help those who struggle to jam along to full songs and to also help those who have the ambition to play in a band one day. I hope it helps!
Let's get started!
Verses - chord progression includes the E5, D5 and G5 power chords
Chorus - chord progression includes the Cadd9, G major and D major open chords, ending with the verse chord progression
Solo - Uses notes from the G major pentatonic scale. the original uses a slide, but the video above shows how to play the solo without using a slide, which is perfect for those still new to lead guitar.
Here's a different tutorial showing how this song can be played using open chords on acoustic guitar, which may be of interest to some of you!
