The Who Behind Blue Eyes Guitar Lesson

Learn how to play the song “Behind Blue Eyes” by The Who with this free guitar lesson.   This song was written originally by Pete Townshend for his Lifehouse project.  It was released in the year 1971 and is of their 5th album  Who’s Next (an incredible album by the way, definitely recommended if you are a fan of The Who) and is one of “The Who’s” most popular songs. You can learn more about this song from the article over at Wikipedia.

This song is in standard tuning.  The chords are all basic beginner chords but there is some arpeggiation involved in this song.  Arpeggiation means that instead of strumming all of the notes of a particular chord at the same time, you are playing each note one at a time in a certain order.  Watch the lesson below for the demonstration on how to do this.  This is definitely a technique you will want to master.
