Keep Your Hands to Yourself
In this lesson, Adam Stark, from The Kicks, shows you how to play “Keep your Hands to Yourself” by The Georgia Satellites. This song was released as a single in 1986, from the band's debut self-titled album.  
It would go on to be the band's most successful song, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.  Many believe this song had the potential to go number 1, but it’s chart success was stunted at #2 due to Bon Jovi’s hit song, “Livin’ on a Prayer,” which held the #1 spot for 4 consecutive weeks. Though it didn’t go number one, there’s no denying the fact that this song is found in almost every classic rock cover band’s set list in America.

Adam plays a Gibson Les Paul in the lesson.
