Riff 2 (From Easy Guitar Riffs)

I’ve spoken and written many times about how learning riffs is a great way to develop technique, rhythm and feel on the guitar.

There’s a riff that I like to give to almost all my guitar students (unless they’re more advanced). It’s very simple. It involves playing a simple quarter note pattern and it moves from string to string. It’s a great riff for coordinating the two hands together.

Below is the sheet music (tabs and notation) for the riff. You can also listen to/play along with the audio file.
