Deep Purple Performing Their All Times Hit Smoke on the Water

This video clip shows the heavy metal and hard rock band Deep Purple performing their greatest hit called Smoke on the Water. This peace of music has become a must play for all hard rock music guitar players.
Deep Purple appeared on the music scene in the 1970s and has remained there for a long time.
This video clip is from a concert in 1999 while the original version was released earlier and the concert recorded in this video clip took place in 1973. We strongly recommend you to look for the original version, specially because of the former singer of the group.
Notice that the lyrics talk about a fire that happened in Montreux where the band played a concert in a music festival, the lyrics also mention another great rock musician: Frank Zappa who also played this festival.
The initial riff is well known all over the world and since it is very easy to play, every beginning rock guitar player learns it. Not so the rest of the song which includes a solo that requires some advanced skills.
