Legendary guitarist Nancy Wilson of the band Heart, who previously explained how she stole the riff for “Barracuda” from a Joni Mitchell/Nazareth song, demonstrated in great detail how to play the acoustic intro to the band’s 1975 hit “Crazy on You”. The intro, which Wilson calls “Silver Wheels”, is a beautiful combination of hammer-ons, pull-off, slides, and harmonics.
This clip was taken from the 1996 Nancy Wilson: Instructional Guitar DVD.
…A song called “Silver Wheels”, that was the introduction on “Dreamboat Annie” to a song called “Crazy on You” and a lot of people always ask me “how does that go?”…
Here’s Wilson playing the song live.
