I’m excited to share my latest video cover of “When You Were Young” by The Killers. This classic hit, known for its powerful melody and striking guitar work, has been meticulously transcribed for both rhythm and lead guitar parts. In this video, I break down each section of the song, ensuring you can play along and master it at your own pace.

Transcription Details

The transcription process involved careful listening and attention to detail to capture the essence of the original recording. Both the rhythm and lead guitar parts have been accurately transcribed to reflect the song’s dynamic range and intricate patterns. The rhythm guitar part maintains the driving force of the song, while the lead guitar captures the soaring melodies that define the track.
