Guitarists Who Shaped the 80s - Tuesday - Week 2

Today's Lick of the Day illustrates a pounding, two-string attack reminiscent of guitarist Angus Young from the band AC/DC. Angus helped shape the guitar of the `80s with his band's release of their 6th album, Back in Black, in August of 1980. He combined the blues style with a hard rock edge creating some of world's most powerful and memorable riffs. In the example below, palm mute all the open A (5th) string notes. This technique is achieved by resting the heel or palm of your picking hand on the bridge of the guitar and dampening the string as you strike it.
