    I got a text from a drummer buddy yesterday, he's played guitar for years but just rhythm, saying that he wants to learn how to solo like Angus. I replied. "me too!". So i thought it might be fun to make a few lesson videos for him and anyone else that might be interested. So what in your opinion are the must learn Angus solos?

    Any haters, please don't bother...

    Hells Bells is my favourite. But they are all more or less the same. In a good way.

    "Whole Lotta Rosie" off of the If You Want Blood live album. Absolutely bonkers.

    Well that goes without saying... ;)

    As does You Shook Me.

    Those are two of my back pocket solos, to be ready to roll out at any time.

    Ah, that's a tough one.

    I'd have to say the one where he plays the minor pentatonic scale over three chords.

    You Shook Me all Night Long was one of the first guitar solos I learned. Fairly easy, moves up the neck and is melodic and something people can identify. There's a lot of good lessons and transcriptions on that one.

    Hard to define a favorite. As many have alluded to, there are a lot of similarities. The new Rock or Bust album is great, but there are a few solos that sound way too similar, in my opinion.

    Girls Got Rhythm- The double stops at the end are great.

    Pretty much all of BnB. What a tone!

    He does meet my approval.

    I think im actually a distant relative, lol. (Heaps distant)

    I like a fair few of their songs.

    But you know its pentatonics over three chords.
