I keep reading this is a good beginner song, but it's I guess the fourth song that I've started working on.

I have a few questions - for those who have got this one down...

1 - Open chords? Em, D, D, D, A, A, A? Or do you do it with power chords? Doing it with open chords (like here: http://www.fretplay.com/tabs/a/ac_dc/back_in_black-tab.shtml)

And pull offs??

Am I missing something? Is this the "wrong" version of Back in Black for beginners?

It also sounds a bit high... Anyway, how do you play this song?

do it with power chords using the E at 7th fret an your A string that sunds good, and yeah use pul off in the bit after the chords
#3
I use the lowest E powerchord, then up to a D open chord minus the octave, then to the A powerchord based on the A D and G strings. for the main riff.

Not trying to be a dick, but there ARE several ways to play any given song. I've seen versions that play the riff using power chords, I posted a link that uses full open chords, and there are some that seem to use something in between. And for the link at the end, there are sites that say it's two pull offs and 4 picks, some seem to be all picking and some seem to be three pull offs.

Clearly it doesn't NEED to be an exact science, because artistic freedom is good, I was just asking for input from those with experience.

So what is the "right" way?

Open chords. The lick, as it seems to be, is one pull-off (3rd frets with pinky) with the rest being picked.

The way it was recorded is the "right" way, and it was recorded with open powerchords.

Why are you using tabs there. Why not just use tabs here? Traitor.

Thanks, I watched that one with interest a few days ago. He's just not hugely detailed. Thanks though, appreciated.

I think I'm on the right path.

You are correct, however... the pitch may be the same, the sound isn't. Different parts of the neck and different strings sound different. Therefore if you want to be as faithful to the original recording, you'd want to use open power chords.

If you watch closely to any AC/DC or listen closely for that matter..... Where ever they can they use Open chords. Keep you eye on Malcom. Gibson's, Marshall's, Natural distortion and Open Chords is pretty much the AC/DC trade mark.
