Learn Dead Flowers, by The Rolling Stones, on Guitar

This post is a tutorial on how to play Dead Flowers, by The Rolling Stones on guitar.

I've rated this tutorial to be at about a 2/10 difficulty rating because this song uses three chords, the D–A–G chord system as I like to put it, and has one strumming pattern throughout the entire song. I suggest that you have about 5 songs under your belt before you start learning this song.

I'll be showing you a transcription of how to play Dead Flowers. There are two guitars in this song, an electric guitar and an acoustic rhythm guitar. I'll be showing you how to play the acoustic rhythm guitar part.

Guns And Roses Takes a Stand Against Selfie-Sticks

This just in from The Independent: Guns and Roses is taking a stand at making concerts more enjoyable:

...concert promoters MCD have released a list of banned items that fans are not permitted to bring to the venue.
Light sabers, sky lanterns and selfie sticks are among the prohibited items, as well as tridents, iPads, food, animals and backpacks.

This is cool, but also, it seems that the concertgoers aren’t allowed to mosh either...

MCD also warned that crowd surfing and moshing will not be permitted and fans found taking part in such activities "will be removed from the venue without a refund".

I guess this might be expected from G&R. They are aging rockers by this point.

What about you? Are you going to go see Guns and Roses this summer?

The best type of guitar depends upon something you already know a lot about: Your body size.
