Basic Blues Riff #1

First let's break down the simplest version of our classic blues riff.

First we'll play the 2nd fret of the A-string with our index finger. Then we'll play the 4th fret with our ring finger. Now we'll alternate between those two, It makes it easier for the right hand if you can mute the D-string with your index finger.

Next up we're going to include the open E-string in our right hand for every note we pick. Let's leave it at this for now, and then we'll build on it in the next lessons.

Now let's practice our new riff together a couple of times really slowly.
