Learn the guitar with Tom Gates!


Hey, it’s Tom Gates here – that’s right from the ultra cool band, DOGZOMBIES!

guitarYou may not have heard of us yet but you will do… once we win the Rockweekly Bandbattle competition!

That’s if we don’t get distracted along the way!

If you want to be super cool rockstars like us, then why not grab your mates and start your very own band?

Don’t worry about the songs, we’re going to show you how to play the different parts of one of my favourite DOGZOMBIES songs – Delia is a Weirdo!

Today we’re going to be learning how to play the part of the guitar!

When you think of rock bands often the first thing you think of is the electric guitar!

With six strings, you can play lots of notes at the same time – called chords – and this is usually the main melody for the song.

Click play and see if you can master the part!


Don’t worry if you don’t get it straight away – practice makes perfect!
