Barracuda Heart

In these 10 lessons we'll break down the classic 70s rocker "Barracuda", made famous by Heart. You'll learn the main hook riff, the sections of the song form, and the solo... plus some really cool guitar tricks like pick slides and whammy bar dives, the flanger effect on guitar, the use of harmonics as single note melodies and chord support, and some odd meters along with some very interesting variations in rhythms and riffing.
