Highway To Hell is one of those great rock songs from back in the good old days… well at least, old days.

We’re going to look at a simplified version of the riff that can help you learn how to use multiple fingers on the guitar.

Got the hang of the riff? Try playing along to this practice video.

The timing for this riff is the most challenging part, so I actually recommend just trying to match the sound as best you can. If you can’t, then don’t stress – just focus on trying to play the fret numbers in the correct order. That’s all we really need for this lesson.


  • Feel free to just use one finger if you’re experiencing difficulty, however we recommend using multiple fingers if possible.
  • If using multiple fingers, the index and middle are the best choices.
  • If using multiple fingers, keep the index on 2nd fret for the entire “2 2 3” section.
  • Keep the song broken up into it’s five sections (depicted below).
  • Our fret numbers are  –  5 5 5    2 2 3    2 2 3    2 2 3    2 5 5
