Lecture Description

Welcome to video four of the Blues Guitar Quick-Start Series. In this lesson we are going to go over a simple blues rhythm guitar riff. Learning blues riffs like this is a nice way to dress up your rhythm blues guitar playing and make it a little more interesting.

In the next lesson you'll learn an intermediate blues rhythm guitar riff based off of the one that you’ll learn in this lesson. Make sure you have this rhythm guitar riff down before moving on.
