In this guitar lesson, Jon MacLennan will teach you a cool riff and chord progression in the style of Kings of Leon.
Ok, so... What is a riff? A riff is the part of the song that you will remember, it can be done with pentatonic, major or minor scales... it depends of the song and the context. For example, do you know Smoke on the water by Deep Purple? That is one of the most known riffs ever. Also the Enter sandman´s riff by Metallica.
Kings of leon is a Grammy winning band from Nashville, Tennessee, United states. They started to play in 1999 and play alternative and southdern rock. The band is still playing...
Alright, so the example of today´s lesson is a nice crunchy power chord progression with 4 strings chords... Pretty basic stuff, so let´s start playing it! Go...
Try it very slow at first and then start to increase the speed gradually. Also don´t forget to come up with your own ideas, which is the best advice for starting to find `your´ unique sound and style.
That is all for today... Anyway, keep enjoying and learning from Jon MacLennan and all the staff at Guitarcontrol.com! Where? In our free lessons at www.youtube.com/guitarcontrol
