Watch the Riff Based Approaches online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Blues Guitar 4: Rhythm Approaches

Riff Based Approaches - Rhythm Concept 3 is a video guitar lesson presented by Kelly Richey and is sourced from Focus On: Blues-Rock Power Trio.


Now let's look at riff based songs to see how riffs and chords are often used in creating many iconic power trio songs. We'll discuss the importance of finding your own voice through the lens of classic songs and iconic guitar players, and also look at several versions of classic songs and compare the difference between the studio versions and the live versions, and why the two differ. I'll use songs like "Whole Lotta Love", "Mamma Was A Funkadelic", "Heartbreaker", and "Purple Haze" as examples to show how the concepts can be used both as a study tool and as a point of musical reference.
