American Woman
Adam Stark, from The Kicks, shows you how to play “American Woman” by Lenny Kravitz. “American Woman” was originally written and recorded by Canadian rock band, The Guess Who, and first released in 1970. Lenny Kravitz covered "American Woman" for the soundtrack to Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. Kravitz put his own twist on the song, giving it a slightly different groove, but maintaining that classic rock guitar tone.

This song would go on to win Lenny a Grammy for Best Male Rock Performance in 2000. The song also peaked at number 3 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Charts. Lets talk about tuning and tone for this song.

Adam plays an Gibson Custom Les Paul R7 Goldtop in the lesson.
