AC/DC Angus Young 2020
AC/DC Angus Young Guitar Playing
Angus Young guitar of choice has always been the Gibson SG.
Angus Young’s first Gibson guitar was a Standard Gibson SG finished in walnut fitted with a Lyre Maestro tremolo bridge.
Angus mainly uses Marshall 1959 100 watt Super Lead Plexi heads and model 1960 AX and BX 4×12 cabinets with Celestion G12-65 speakers.
He uses Ernie Ball Super Slinky guitar strings (.009-.042) and Fender “Extra Heavy” picks.
Young’s lead guitar playing and riffs are based around the pentatonic blues scale.
AC/DC might have a simple approach as far as guitar scales are concerned but the secret is in the powerful guitar tones, groove and space in the music.
Yes, AC/DC have been accused to making the same record over and over again by critics. But stuff the critics – it’s the enduring sound of AC/DC and the Young brothers – Angus and Malcom – that have created a music insitution.
You just know it’s AC/DC and Angus – that surely is the holy grail for any guitarist!
Angus and Malcolm created some fantastic trademark guitar moments:
- Clean intro into the main riff – For Those About to Rock
- Angus the double stop master – the two notes bends are everywhere in AC/DC music
- Speedy, flurry of notes climaxing in a lovely, smooth single note vibrato
Malcolm Young Funeral
This is a very touching tribute by Angus Young to his brother and AC/DC bandmate – carrying his guitar behind his coffin.
A final salute by Angus to Malcolm from us all who rocked to the the sound of their guitars.
