Guitar-Based Pop Music
Guitar-Based Pop music is a huge genre that can include the gloomy sounds of bands like The Cure, all the way to the echoed guitar grooves of U2. Even dating back to the 1970's we had guitar-driven bands like Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles. In the 1980's we had groups like Queen and Bryan Adams. And, during the 90's there were guitar-pop bands like Ace Of Base and The Cranberries. To compare all of these groups on one single platform, (or with one musical approach), would obviously be quite difficult since they each have very diverse writing styles. However, in making this lesson plan covering Guitar-Based Pop I can give a good general overview of how the bands within this style approach their guitar theory; which will include everything from scales, to chord use, to performance and recording techniques. Enjoy the lesson! Watch the video lesson below to learn more:
