Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City By Whitesnake


Ain’t No Love in the Heart of the City is a 1974 R&B song, written by Michael Price and Dan Walsh, and first recorded by Bobby “Blue” Bland.

Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City by Whitesnake was Originally released as a double-vinyl album, and double-play cassette, it utilises recordings made in 1978 and 1980. The album charted at number 5 on the UK Albums Chart, and number 146 on the Billboard 200. The cover was the new band’s first hit, and it became a staple of their live set.

The track also appears on Snakebite  the first official release by Whitesnake. The original EP initially featured only four tracks and was released in the UK in June 1978 and never published in the US. Snakebite was re-released in September 1978 as a Double Extended Play containing four extra studio tracks taken from David Coverdale’s second solo album Northwinds. The EP sleeve is entitled David Coverdale’s Whitesnake and features photographs of the live band in concert. All tracks from the original EP also were used as bonus tracks on the 2006 remaster of Whitesnake’s debut studio album Trouble.

Some of the songs from this album would be captured later in 1978 and released on the 1980 Live…In the Heart of the City live album.

In this lesson I have covered all the guitar parts including easy style chords to play.

For the solo I have improvised like so may guitarist who have played with Whitesnake have also done so.

What I thought would fun would be for subscribers to record there own version of the solo and post it to a private page so we could discuss your playing.

If I get enough people interested in this then I will create the private space and start the discussion. It doesn’t just have to be this song I could be any of the other songs I have covered in the past and created backing tracks for the lesson.

I would be very interested to hear from you regarding this idea. My email is
