Watch the Keep It Simple online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Rock Guitar Greatest Hits - Vol. 4

Keep It Simple is a video guitar lesson presented by Massimo Varini and is sourced from Rhythm Motifs

Motifs are very important in music, allowing you to start from a simple idea and then process it until you get the full track. Remember "less is more!" Often playing "little" leads to great results. We'll start with an arpeggio of three notes and discover together how to use this motif in our arrangement. The motif is considered the spark from which our musical discourse can be born. We'll talk about the notes of the triads, extensions, and rhythmic variations.
