This lesson will show you two riff ideas to learn and use in your guitar practice right now.

Riff 1

Riff number one has a blues rock sound. The best way to learn it is to break it up into two smaller sections. Breaking longer musical passages into smaller sections is the best way to master them.

Learn the first section of the guitar riff first. Once you can play the first section from memory use the same approach with the second part. It is very important to learn to play both sections from memory. It is very difficult to build consistency and speed playing the riff if you have to look at the tablature while playing it-commit it to memory as quickly as you can.

Once you can play each section on its own put the two together. Play slowly and make certain that your fret hand fingerings are consistent-play the riff the same way with the same fingers each time. The same goes for your pick hand-use the same pick motions each time you play it. Take your time-if you practice using consistent fingerings the speed is sure to follow.

Riff 2

The second guitar riff is also based on a bluesy sounding pattern. Use the same approach to learning this one as the first-break it into two sections and master each section before you try to put them together.

There are many benefits to using riffs in your guitar practice. Playing riffs improves your technique by allowing you to work on musical ideas that are based on songs and integrate several important guitar techniques all at the same time.

Riffs also improve your hand coordination and memory. Improving your ability to memorize guitar parts is crucial for learning to play complete songs. You can use these same principles of breaking riffs down into smaller parts when you learn your favorite music.

Make sure you listen for guitar riffs in your favorite music. Many styles use them-rock, blues, country, pop and metal. They are played on both acoustic and electric guitar. Start using riffs from songs you like in your practice-the two ideas in this lesson are just a starting point.
