Guitar Technique


The rhythm and accents of this solo is different from most classic solos because most of the accents are on the upbeat. Also the solo has lots of big bends so make sure you are bending to the correct pitch. This solo can take a while to learn so, I broke it up into 3 parts. I recommend learning how to play one part really good before moving on to the next part.

“Slave Driver” Bob Marley

Slave driver the table is turned
Catch a fire so you can get burned
Slave driver the table is turned
Catch a fire you’re gonna get burned

Ev’ry time I hear the crack of the whip
My blood runs cold
I remember on the slave ship
How they brutalised our very souls
Today they say that we are free
Only to be chained in poverty
Good god, I think it’s all illiteracy
It’s only a machine that make money

Slave driver the table is turned
Slave driver the table is turned baby now
Catch a fire so you can get burned baby now
Slave driver the table is turned
Catch a fire so you can get burned

Ev’ry time I hear the crack of the whip
My blood runs cold
I remember on the slave ship
How they brutalised our very souls

Oh god have mercy on our souls

 Guitar Technique


This is a great song to learn if you are just learning how to play barre chords. Once you can finger the Bm and Em chord shapes, just move the Em barre chord up two frets and you have F#m.

Also there is some cool lead licks near the end of this song, so listen for those and try to play them by ear.

*Hint* Bm pentatonic scale

Guitar Techniques


This Bob Marley song is one of the best reggae songs off his classic album “Legends”.  The key to playing this song is using a sharp right hand attack for the rhythm part. The main guitar riff uses a palm muting technique, which is resting the right hand palm over the bridge of the guitar to dampen the sound of the strings. Listen to the rhythmic accents when you play along to this song.
