Learn How To Play The Exorcist Theme On Guitar!!

Written by admin on May 5th, 2011

Hey all. Here is a quick lesson on how to play the opening theme to the hit horror flick, The Exorcist!! This theme has been a lifetime favorite of mine and if you haven’t heard the Mike Oldfield album “Tubular Bells” with this featured song, then you gotta grab a copy! It’s completely awesome!

Now, the tabs I have provided you are easy enough to play, but the trick to getting the notes to sound right is to sustain as many notes into each other as possible. Don’t be quick to lift off your finger before the next note is picked. It’s kind of like using the sustain pedal on a piano…only not!

Watch, and listen, to the video above to see how I am playing it and I’m sure with a bit of practice, you’ll have this down in no time…:)

Have fun and enjoy!
