More Guitar Lessons For Beginners – this one for the Goo Goo Dolls song Name. For the record, I love this song. It is such a great acoustic song to play. Also, when I think of acoustic songs, Goo Goo Dolls Name is one of the first ones to popup in my mind. The most interesting aspect of this goo goo dolls song is that it’s in a super funky alternate tuning (Don’t worry, we’ll cover that below). Most people think they can play it in standard E guitar tuning… these people are greatly mistaken. I’ve seen tons of different ways to play this song online but I got to give it to Brent Persia and his YouTube video. I based my over and lesson after his with a few minor modifications. Well done Brent! Checkout Brent’s video on YouTube if you haven’t already. To make Name sound like the way the Goo Goo Dolls make it, you gotta be in the alternate tuning, be able to master the solo (the solo makes the song) and be good at softly plucking and strumming individual notes. It’s really not a hard song to play, you just have to be in the right guitar tuning.
Why was Goo Goo Dolls Name written?
Apparently, this song is about the lead singer Johnny Reznick’s childhood and about how his sisters had to raise him. His parents died when he was young and certain lyrics in the song depict what he had felt at the time.
What’s the music and guitar theory behind the song?
Goo Goo Dolls Name Guitar Chords
There’s really no recognizable guitar chords in this song that would be beneficial to know, especially in this tuning. You’re left hand is basically just hitting one or two strings with your right hand strumming the rhythm and plucking individual notes (better explanation in the guitar lessons for beginners videos below). You’ll see what I mean in the Guitar Lessons For Beginners below.
Goo Goo Dolls Name Guitar Solo
This guitar solo is great and makes the song. It’s really not that hard either. You honestly just have to watch the video to understand what is going on. Once again, props to Brent Persia. This dude put out a YouTube video a while back with a Goo Goo Dolls Name Guitar Cover and then he had a link to the guitar tab that he tabbed out on his site. Thanks Brent!

How to make your guitar sound like the guitar in the recording of Goo Goo Dolls Name
First off, it’s an acoustic guitar if you didn’t know already (some people don’t). I would you lighter strings. Elixirs work great with a poly finish. Maybe like 11’s. Make sure you use a light pick and when strumming and picking, gentle strums and gentle picks. Acoustic guitar, light strings and play soft!
This is a great song to learn how to play. It makes you sound like an acoustic guitar god and girls love it! Also its pretty cool because a lot of people/beginners don’t know how guitar tunings work.
