About the course

Hello friends! Today we'll talk about what are guitar riffs, and some of the coolest riffs to play using only one string on your guitar. Our goal here is to learn the notes and rhythmic patterns of real easy guitar riffs, but also being faithful to the original songs! There are many online guitar videos and tutorials that teach you guitar riffs in the wrong keys and fingering, so when you play them with the original recording it sounds nothing like it. We're here to solve that problem today! Let's get rocking!
