Learn to play guitar riffs. Create your own!
What is a riff?
If I were to ask you to sing a song like Back In Black (AC/DC) or Black Dog (Led Zeppelin):
What would be the first thing you would try to sing?
Would it not be what the guitar plays?
Don’t you think that these phrases in someway define what the song is all about? These distinct musical phrases (riffs) establish a unique manner about how to play chord. Instead of just strumming a chord, we play original phrases that sound like the chord but in a way that makes them become a vital element of the song .
How about if we learn to create our own unique riffs?
Upon completion of this course the student will be able to create his own unique riffs in similar musical contexts as the analysed examples.
How will we achieve this goal ?
