I’m a huge Angus Young fan… he was, arguably, my first guitar hero way back in the late 1970s…

And what I’ve come to learn as I’ve gotten more into the blues and its history, is that Angus had some great blues moves that apply as much to classic rock as they do the blues.

In this video, I’ll show you one that he uses a lot in “Back In Black,” and many other songs, where he “turns” around the blue note in a minor blues scale (the b5.)

      This works well for me after a couple measures of the one, and after an introduction that sort pf “borrows” from this tonally. Believe it or not, there are some Otis Rush intros that sound quite like this.

      You even broke out the SG for today’s lesson! This was a fun lesson, I’ve been a fan of Angus and Malcolm since Dirty Deeds came out
