A collection of songs which gave an insight into the workings of Ian Curtis’s mind. There’s not much to say about Joy Division that hasn’t been said already, I mean, Unknown Pleasures is one of those albums that everyone has heard of, everyone knows the band and everyone knows that cover! It says a million and one things but nothing I can say can do it justice. A pure work of genius. Lets learn to play one of my favourite songs on the album, Disorder.
What Are We Learning To Play?
Below is a video of what you will be able to play by the end of this post.
We are learning to play the opening two guitar riffs and then the beginning of the vocal line. Palm mute your strings on the first riff to give the sound a little more punch.
