In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn a cool blues riff that revolves around a string stretch. This is kind of an “advanced-beginner” level riff, because the overall riff is fairly easy to pickup; however to really pull it off smoothly you need to be able to master a couple important techniques.
The stretch itself is important, and Colin’s note about using more than one finger to give the stretch extra strength will really help you out. Also, keep in mind you’re stretching up a full tone, and he shows you how to find out what that is supposed to sound like.
The other part that is quite important is getting the mute down correctly. This might take a bit of practice, but it is a very useful technique to master. Ready? Let’s dive in.
