More Guitar Riffs in G Major

Here’s another lesson with some new guitar riffs for you, based on the G major and E minor scale patterns. It really helps once you start recognizing how the minor scale is integrated with the major scale. That’s something I cover in detail in my Guitar Scale Patterns course, however you can see it in action in this guitar lesson.

As with all the guitar riffs you learn, I recommend watching closely to how I play it, make sure you understand the riff and what scale patterns it is related to, and then work it over a whole bunch to make it your own.

No doubt you have different tastes in music than I do, and so I will naturally play a riff differently than you would, even if we’re playing the same notes. I might emphasize something different than you would, and that’s cool, because that’s how we get our great diversity in music.

Anyways, grab your guitar, and let’s learn some guitar riffs!

Tommy Emmanuel – Guitar Boogie

Here’s a great version of Tommy Emmanuel playing Guitar Boogie. The first time I saw him play this song it blew my mind, seeing what he does with an acoustic guitar. This clip is taken from a concert he did in St. Louis.

It’s great to see how comfortable Tommy is onstage and playing that guitar, cracking jokes the whole time.

Guitar Boogie is basically a 12 bar E blues… with a few frills. 🙂

I think if you watch closely enough, you’ll probably see the kitchen sink in there somewhere.

Unfortunately the video isn’t terribly big on closeups, but if nothing else, I hope you’re motivated watching Tommy Emmanual rip through this version of Guitar Boogie.
