New Lesson on How to Play "Jeremy" by Pearl Jam

Posted by Michael Mueller on December 12, 2016 at 4:16 PM

The third single from Pearl Jam's massively successful 1991 album Ten, "Jeremy" became not only a big hit but also one of the most popular videos of all time on MTV. The song tells the story of teenager Jeremy Wade Delle, who shot himself in front of his high school English class in Richardson, Texas, in January 1991.

Although the song is driven by the signature 12-string bass riff, there is plenty of cool guitar playing happening throughout, from mimicking that bass riff to driving power chords to highly effective parallel moves from A minor to A major in the chorus. Instructor Doug Boduch covers it all in his 25-minute video lesson, after which you can jam along on the tune using the backing track and scrolling tab.
