Chordplay – The Chords Of UFO
Here’s the next episode of Chordplay with The Chords Of UFO. I fell into a “UFO hole” the other day on Facebook and judging by the response from a number of friends/viewers, the feeling was mutual, so I figured it was time to finally take a look at some of the legendary and highly-influential chord-moves coming from these pioneering British hard-rockers.
This lesson focuses on UFO’s early material when they literally paved the way for countless guitarists/bands that followed in their footsteps during the 1970s, 1980s, and beyond. While the ideas we’re hitting in this lesson include several ideas coming from the mighty Michael Schenker along with early-80s material from Paul Chapman, there really wasn’t a way to capture all of their eras, players, and sounds, as they’ve released 22 albums over their long and impressive career.
The ideas shared in this lesson include UFO classics such as ‘Too Hot To Handle’ and ‘Natural Thing’ along with lesser-known fan favorites such as ‘Gone In The Night’ and ‘Queen Of The Deep.’ So needless to say, there are plenty of interesting chord-based ideas and moves hiding in this lesson.
There’s something to say about going back and finding riffs and ideas like these in classic rock guitar music, as many of these songs and the albums this music came from inspired an entire generation of guitarists, musicians, and bands – so dive in, give these ideas a go, have some fun, and see what creeps into your playing.
