Lessons by Have Guitar!
Time for a lesson on how to play Great Expectations by KISS. Both guitar and bass! Not overly comlicated but what a great song, if you ask me… this track comes from Destroyer and was released in 1976. As it happends it was the first rock album that I got my hands on and after that there was no turning back, whatever the current trends says (grin).
Some people might say that Destroyer was ‘over-produced’ but I think the sound of that album is fantastic, it kinda captures the image of KISS – especially in the new costumes they got for that album. From what I know the song has only been performed live once and that was during the recording of ‘Symphony Alive IV’, understandable as it kinda feels a bit empty when scaled down to just guitars, bass and drums.
Anyways, I hope you liked the lesson and maybe even had some use of it… if you wanna support Have Guitar – subscribe, see the link below. Big appreciation goes out to all of You who do subscribe, Thanks!!!
