Hey guys, welcome to another lesson! Today, we are going to talk about “The riff,” and in particular a Bluesy riff that I wrote just yesterday.ย 

A riff is a musical idea repeated throughout the song. It can be a set of chords, a melody, or a short pattern

In this lesson, we are going to learn how to play this simple bluesy riff played with both the major scale and the minor pentatonic scale. The cool thing about such a simple riff is that it can be easily transposed to a different chord while keeping the same rhythm and contour.

By repeating the riff several times throughout the song, it becomes clear to the audience that this musical idea is not just an accompaniment, but it is the song itself.ย 

This is why, when the riff is soo recognizable, it becomes a song!ย 

I hope that with this lesson you get inspired. Learn this awesome bluesy riff and then, spend time creating your riffs. Try to come up with at least three different ideas.ย 

Enjoy this lesson.ย

๐ŸŽธFAQs:
Are you a full-time YouTuber?
Yes, I am on YouTube as Marco Cirillo, and I promote my videos on my website BlitzGuitar.com. All the courses I post online are available on my Patreon page https://bit.ly/2rMAPYG

How long have you been playing guitar for?
I started playing guitar when I was 10 years old, so it has been more than 20 years. I have always loved fingerpicking guitar, so this is why all my tutorials focus on this topic.

Why are you on Patreon?
Patreon is great! It allows creators to make money doing what they love. On Patreon, I can share my guitar lessons with my Patrons and get paid for it. As a creator, I feel like Patreon really made a massive difference in the way I share my content ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you do concerts?
I used to do a lot of gigs in the past. London is a great place to play music almost every day. When my YouTube channel started to grow, I decided to go all-in and try to help as many people as possible learning guitar. This goal takes all the time I have available, so I am not doing any gig or concert atm.
