This post features some great videos from Justin Sandacre that show you how to play Under The Bridge by The Red Hot Chili Peppers. If you’ve never heard of Justin then you’re in for a treat as his web site, www.justinguitar.com, is one of the very best guitar resources on-line.
Justin’s site contains many, many excellent lessons and tutorials (all free) so if you want to learn about guitar playing then this site has everything you need. There are also some great .pdf’s and DVDs available (for a small charge) but given the quality the prices are cheap and offer great value for money. Justin’s YouTube Channel is well worth checking out too.
