It may have come almost 20 years into their career, but Thunderstrck is a sure-fire sign of a band with plenty of life left in them.
Angus is famed for his blistering blues edged solos and powerchord riffage. The main riff in Thunderstruck, however, has a distinct classical flavour, slightly reminiscent of the outro to Van Halen’s Eruption. The main difference is that Angus picks every note, which is quite an undertaking at this tempo!
The main intro/verse riff is based around an open second string B note that he plays between alternate fretted notes. This takes lots of dexterity and co-ordination between the two hands. Nice one, Ang!
