Slide Riffs Following the Chord - Riff Ninja Academy

Slide Riffs Following the Chord

In this short lesson, I'll teach you how to throw a simple slide riff in after you've played the chord. Keep in mind, my guitar is tuned to Open E Major, so if you want to play along, make sure you're tuned to E B E G# B E.

As far as the riffs go, slide is a pretty fluid way of playing the guitar; don't get hung up on doing things exactly as I've done. Most of all, let your ear be the final judge. If it sounds good, then you're on the right track.

Just FYI, the four notes first used are E, D, B, and A, not E, D, A, and G.

Smoken hot on that one. I just picked it up again for the 3rd time in life and this time it looks good. Looking at stuff like this makes it easy to justify all my Git’Mo’s hanging on the wall, not to mention hard explanation to the Wife and they all new to me within 6 months, But Muscle memory is better and easier to play these days. I even think there’s a song in here some where. Anyways thanks for the info and I enjoy good Ideas like these on the Vid, Have a great day,,, Top of the Day to ya,,, as Pappy would say,,,, LOLĀ
