Now the song I would like you to learn is the famous song from the Rocky movies called Eye of the Tiger. It is a good starter song for beginners. You can find the song on albums from Survivor but also on a album called Rocky Balboa: The Best of Rocky from 2006. Like I said the group that made this song is called Survivor. Now if you have heard this song, you might think that this song is hard to play on the guitar. But actually it's a very easy song to play on the guitar. The song is played on two guitars by the Survivor band, but you can play it on one guitar also.
And if you are only going to play along with the song, this would not be a problem for you. I'm going to split this song up into segments also, just like I did with the "The Entertainer" song in the earlier guitar lesson. One more thing, I saw that there are many people teaching this song. And I found that some of them are actually wrong. Well wrong might not be the right word to use. There are a couple of ways to play this song, some use power chords. But if you want to keep it simple, and be able to play along with the song you should follow what I say here. We are only going to use two fingers most of the time to keep it simple. And then in the lyrics I show how to play the piano part.
Here is a video of Survivor doing Eye of the Tiger Live In Nagoya Japan 1987 Now the first part is pretty simple, the intro of the song.
