Rhythm is the driving force behind music. You don’t need to know a million chords and scales if you have a solid rhythmic foundation. Having good rhythm and timing makes everything you play sound like music – even if it’s just a 2 chord song!

I teach a lot of guitar. I have online students all over the world, and I take teaching very seriously. I think about it a lot. I try to figure out different ways to make people improve. In this lesson, we are going to go over a technique I like to show my students.

Learning something to the point of being able to play it to the track is super important. You don’t truly know a song until you can play it a long to the original recording! The problem is that songs often have tons of different parts, and they can take a while to learn. I have selected 4 “riff songs” to run. I call them riff songs because almost the entire song is just one riff.

I provide a metronome and guitar backing track for each riff in this lesson. I do three speeds: I loop the riff way slower than the song. Then I loop the riff a bit faster, but still not full speed. lastly, I loop the riff at full speed. At this point, it’s up to you to put on the original recording of the song, and jam along!

I can honestly say that you will not regret getting at least one of these riffs down with the original recording. It’s super fun, and is a necessary activity in your growth as a guitarist/musician.
