Today we are going to learn to play "Don't Fear the Reaper" as recorded by Blue Oyster Cult in 1976. Written and sung by Donald "Buck Dharma" Roeser, this song is driven by a timeless guitar hook and features a progressive and edgy bridge section. In this tutorial we'll talk about gear and finding the right tones, we'll learn the hook line, the pre-chorus and chorus, some melodic fills and a progressive three guitar bridge section. At the end we'll play along with the backing track!
