Not the full song, but a version for beginners.
This song is all about power chords. Power chords are ubiquitous in rock music.
This is part 2 of Welsh Tornado.
It is in two parts due to software limitations.
Just got to get that capo on while you are playing. It's not that difficult really, but looks cool. Part 1 is here: Welsh Tornado Pt1.
Showing how you can play the chords from the Major Scale using 3 Notes Per String Shape 1.

Finger Exercises for the Beginner Guitarist, developing movement
To make the best use of this lesson file, play a section a day. Repeat the section for a couple of minutes. Work on something else, then do a few mew more minutes.
Take care to use the fingering suggested as shown in the stave, and play it slowly and steadily. Don't rush. You are not trying to play from start to finish, you are developing left and right hand coordination and how to move your fingers.
A list of all the keys from the Major Scales.
Take a look, it won't take long before you realise why people use scales like Eb instead of D#
This Lesson File extends 3 Notes Per String Shape 1 - Triads.
View that if you haven't already.
To extend the chord to include the 7th interval, I simply add the triad that would start from the 3rd interval, 1,3,5,7.
This is an example of how to stimulate creativity, plus get you playing riffs and ideas that you might not have come up with ordinarily.
Not the whole tune, just the main melody that you probably think of when you are asked to.
I have written this out using 8th notes, then again in 16th notes, same tune, just written differently.
A stripped down version of the classic G'N'R song aimed at beginners
Count out loud 1, 2, 3, 4 | 1, 2, 3, 4 etc.
For the verse, strum the chords on beat 1 only, this gives you time to change in beats 2, 3, 4 so that you are ready for the next bar.
Some of the riffs form the classic tune from the classic album from the classic band.
Not completed yet, will add more later.
See if you can work out what the names of the notes from each chord should be.
To work out the notes you need to remember that the chord is made up of the formula 1,3,5,7. What would that be in the C Major scale. Convert that to the chord you are on i.e If you are on a D chord, then you have to work out how far a third is from D etc
Classic solo demonstrated in a couple of positions
Take your time and explore other possible places to play it.
I start on the 4th string.
