Oh, Pretty Woman Roy Orbison

In these lessons, Henrik Linde will break down the parts to the song "Oh, Pretty Woman", by Roy Orbison. Henrik will examine the gear and tones, then dive straight into the classic single-note intro riff. We'll follow up with the verse elements on acoustic and electric, then look at the bridge acoustic and electric parts, and the song outro as well. You'll do a play along with Henrik, then we'll mute the guitars so you can jam along with the band.

You're My Baby Roy Orbison

Mike will show you the 2 clean electric guitars featured in this song. Guitar 1 plays rockabilly style rhythms and licks with a slap echo sound, while Guitar 2 strums the chord progressions throughout. This song uses open, power, and extended chords, a cut time swing groove, and some classic twangy rockabilly approaches.
