RUSH – Working Man – Guitar Lesson -Very Easy!!


Hi, I’m Bob from Toronto, Canada this guitar lesson is [boun] how to play Workingman by Rush and It’s easy enough for beginner guitars to learn Rush is also from Toronto, Canada Okay, I’ll play it first and then I’ll show how it’s played, so it’s like this So it first starts off on an e power [chord], so you play the top string open? You play the fifth string second fret the fourth string second fret That it [as] a chord in this pattern That you slide up to the fifth string fifth fret and the sixth string fifth fret Back to the e power chord and play it the same way as before and stood fifth string third fret You slide up to the fifth fret? So that part again is like this That’s six times you go to the fourth string second fret fifth string second fret [they] that four times like so Then you play the open fret on the fourth string Open fret on the 5th string so so open fret fourth string we fret you put that four times like so [let’s] to the 6th string 3rd fret fifth string fifth fret You play that twice? And slide up to the fifth fret on the top string into the seventh fret on the 5th string Open top string open this string The fifth string this red led up [to] the seventh row so that hurt again So and that’s basically the whole song – Guitar solo I hope this video has [been] helpful and thanks for watching

  1. it wouldnt take to long…if you mean the whole song maybe a few weeks to a month if you try hard…but yeah are you in a band?

  2. thanks bob, you rules please, please, teach us the closer to the heart solo, rush has been my favorite band since alway, i saw them in phoenix in 1993, i guess, i got in acetato the first 12 records, until the greace under pressure

  3. why are there always arguments on youtube….who cares if someone is a better guitarist….there is always someone better…….if your so good why are you looking at this video……..FOR BEGINNERS!!…..lol

  4. Shouldn't it be 5th and 6th string 7th fret alternating, then 5th and 6th string 5th fret alternating when playing the second part?

  5. You're awesome bob. Can you post more rush lessons? Maybe tom sawyer, limelight, or YYZ. That would be fucking awesome.

  6. thanks so much for this touturial. it helped me alot and so have alot of other toturials that you have done. thanks again

  7. Not to be mean spirited but wouldn't it be better to teach the song the right way than the easy way? you have way to many errors…even for beginers….because they will have to re learn it right!…….thumbs down for now

  8. @69customSG DUDE , improvisation is fine for music…I think he did a great job , and I really dont care if its learned "wrong" or whatever …sounds awesome ! isnt that the point??? that it sounds good??? I think someones just jealous!

  10. Thank you! I'm a bassist but I am going to steal my little sister's electric guitar to try this! I can't wait. I'm glad, this is very helpful to people like me who like to learn by ear.

  11. would it be possible to put in the tab despite how good you teach each part? the other tabs dont match this at all

  14. bobby i am sure you are accomplished guitar player, but as a tip when you teach you have video the picking part also not just the chords

  15. Yes acoustic electric is a type of guitar, when you plug it in it is electric and when you unplug it you can play it as acoustic.

  16. To holy wolf tactical assassins: my acoustic does have an equalizer, I should know that they exist since I have one and paid 400 for it…
