How to Play "Seven Nation Army" by the White Stripes in New Song Lesson

Posted by Michael Mueller on August 4, 2017 at 4:03 PM

The first single from their 2003 album Elephant, the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army," simple as it is, has become one of the most popular songs of the past 15 years. The tune is fueled by guitarist Jack White's austere bass riff (actually a guitar transposed down an octave via a Whammy pedal) and also features full-on sonorous slide guitar chords to bring it all home.

In this lesson, Doug Boduch shows you how to best navigate all of it, including tips on playing the song in standard tuning and without a slide, if that's your preference.
