Here are some tips on making the most out of this section.
- Why no TAB? For the riffs, the tab is intentionally NOT shown.Too many guitarists are given every note and never encouraged to work anything out for themselves. If you can work out just one small thing or a few notes here and there, your playing will improve for it!
- Write down the TAB – Below there are some downloads for you to get, Print them off and write down the TAB or notation for each song. Doing this will help you remember them better!
- Work out a song purely by ear – I urge you to NOT look but instead listen to me playing one of these riffs and try to work it out purely by ear. This will build your aural skills and confidence is very practical ear training. Many pros do this and you can do it too!) It’s easier working out the riffs from my videos as you don’t get the distractions of all the other instruments when listening to a full band. If you get stuck, follow my instructions on how to play the riff and try working out another by ‘ear’ later..
