We will be covering the guitar chords in this guitar lesson for the Song "Survival" and it uses some great chord progressions along with some great little guitar techniques that take a little time to get used to. I go over the guitar technique quite quickly but do take it at your own pace, re-winding where necessary as all parts are played at approx half speed
As a note The original "survival" song by Muse was recorded on a guitar tuned down a half step (To Eb) However I have taught this in standard tuning to make things a little easier for you. The first part of this song is an orchestral arrangement. My lesson begins at the piano part that enters which we can mimic on the guitar
