Guitar Techniques - - TECHNIQUE -

It’s of­ten said that rhythm gui­tar is among the most im­por­tant skills. This is es­pe­cially true of heavy rock riff­ing, where ac­cu­racy and stamina are ab­so­lutely key. This ex­er­cise is de­signed to get to the heart of the mat­ter, fea­tur­ing muted 8th, 16th notes and triplets. It’s es­sen­tial to be able to switch seam­lessly be­tween th­ese if you are to be known as a great rock rhythm guitarist. James Het­field, randy rhoads and John Sykes are all great rif­fers to pick up tips from.
