Hi Everyone!

We have one more Target and Pay Per Lesson release for you today! I Want To Break Free by Queen

I Want To Break Free is a song by the British band Queen. It was written by bass player John Deacon
and was originally included on their 11th album, The Works, released in 1984.

This lesson shows how to play the rhythm guitar part.

The song features a classic I, IV, V progression for the verses in the key of E and can be played with
power chord shapes from the E and/or A families.

The most important technique for the strumming hand, and essential for the overall feel of the song,
is to ‘dampen the strings’, so we take a close look at that.

Enjoy this level 4 lesson!
