In these lessons we will take a look at Bon Jovi's smash hit "Livin' On A Prayer" in it's entirety note-for-note.
Released in 1986 on their insanely successful Slippery When Wet album, "Livin' On A Prayer" has gone on to become their signature song and consistently tops greatest songs of the 80's lists.
It's enduring quality isn't only the great singalong chorus', but also the infectious talk-box inflected guitar riff that is heard throughout the song's intro and other times in the song as well.
"Livin' On A Prayer" would be great to learn for just about any level of guitarist. The riffs and chords are very basic with nothing to out of the ordinary. The solo on the other hand does have a couple quick licks that are more in an intermediate category.
In this Livin' On A Prayer guitar lesson I will demonstrate all of the guitar riffs and even transcribe the keyboard parts in the verse so you can play along when there is no guitar on the original recording.
I have another recommendation for you as well. If you are ever in any type of a band that plays covers this is quite definitely the one song that will get everyone up and moving. Well perhaps this and "Sweet Child O' Mine".
Regardless, "Livin' On A Prayer" is one of the most beloved songs of all time and still gets tons of radio airplay and downloads almost 30 years after it's initial release. You definitely need to have this song in your bag of tricks!
As I mentioned before, there is nothing very difficult with the riffs you will be required to play. The solo does contain a liberal amount of 80's rock guitar techniques including pinch harmonics, bends, rakes, doublestops and a fast sextuplet lick to finish out the solo.
I suggest learning the solo phrase by phrase like I teach it in the video lesson and you shouldn't have much trouble getting it under your fingers. Pay close attention to how I pick the fast lick at the end of the solo. Picking it the correct way can make it much easier to learn. :)
OK guys, Enjoy!!

Learning how to draw cartoon animals from the farm is not such a difficult task! Weve grown up surrounded by them! Farm animals are everywhere: In blockbuster movies, childs books, greeting cards. their shapes and images are printed in our minds!
In this section, I will show you how to determine what are the physical uniqueness of each animal and how to work with them. Then, you can practice drawing each cartoon character using basic shapes.
You will have the opportunity to make nice illustrations, practice sketching and cartooning using short easy lessons and complete your creation using a drawing software to create vector art if you want to! Cartoon drawing is really fun once you get into it!
Dont be afraid to try until you get it right. This method is really simple, but requires practice and observation. So, sit back and relax. Learn how to draw animals from the farm and start your journey on a good note!
Lets try s few basic characters to get started! :)
A cute turkey to begin with.
In this first tutorial, you can learn how to draw a fun turkey mostly made from small rectangles and large circular shapes. The posture of the character is really interesting. Not only is it easier to draw than a front version, but its also easier to add some perspective (as we can see with the legs). The fact that we just need to draw one wing is also interesting.
Most of these cartoon animals are not filled with complex textures or digital effects. In this case, the subject is filled with plain colors and only a few basic details (inside the tail) were added.
A nice turtle also from a side view.
