Guitar Amp Settings for Playing Hells Bells Guitar Tab
If you have a Line 6 Spider IV, there is a Back in Black setting which is pretty close. With a few tweaks you can get the AC/DC heavy metal sound.
Obviously if you want to mimic the true AC/DC sound, you are going to need a Gibson SG, although not absolutely necessary. If you play though a cranked up Plexi into Marshall 4 x 2, you shouldn’t have a problem getting the sound.

I wanted to tell you about a great Online Guitar Lesson programme I have been following. I’ve been playing guitar for over 30 years and was self taught, but when you teach yourself you can pick up bad habits and get stuck in a rut. I’ve never made so much progress since I signed up with Guitar Tricks. You can try it out for free before you spend a penny.
See the sample lesson below and go to Online Guitar Lessons to find out more.

AC/DC Artist Study: Angus Young Licks
by Prashant Aswani of GuitarTricks.com
Instructor: Prashant Aswani
Speciality: Rock, Metal
Guitar Tricks instructor Prashant Aswani takes you through some of the elements of style that make AC/DC one of the most popular
bands in rock. In this lesson we’re going to take a look at a standard pentatonic lick in the style of Angus Young. This one is in
A minor, and features the kind of aggressive bending and pentatonic playing that Angus often uses.
This free lesson is from an 8 lesson Artist Study at Guitar Tricks. This AC/DC tutorial looks at the
foundations of the band’s signature tone, how Angus and Malcolm voice their chords and give them movement, some of the pentatonic
licks they use, the use of open string licks, and double stops. In the final lesson there’s a jam along session with a rockin’
custom jam track!
