Black Diamond by KISS (Guitar lesson, lead & rhythm)

A diamond in the rough? Not really, I believe that Black Diamond is a very well known song … at least amongst KISS fans. It’s a classic hard rockin’ song from the band’s first self-titled album that was released in 1974.

So this lesson contain how to play the rhythm and lead guitar… that is the first lead, as the song has two. Due to lack of time I had to split this into two videos and the next one will of course be the bass and lead 2 lessons. Plus my version of the tune without vocals and leads for those who practise or just use it for fun.

So KISS was rockin in the 70’s and so could you be, if you subscribe to my channel! Thanks for watching and a Big Fat Thanks to all you subscribing, t-t-t-thanks!
