Today’s riff combines the power and the fury of power chords with the E-natural minor scale on the 6th string and the imagination of a 10-year-old student named Jack who co-wrote this song.
If you’re following along with the book, The Ultimate Rock Guitar Dojo for Kids: White Belt Edition, this study correlates directly to pages 48-50 in the book.
The entire song is built around this simple rhythm:
|ry q q q|
In order to master this riff, count and clap along with the recording:
1 & 2 3 4
If your music teacher uses the Kodaly system for rhythms, you might feel more comfortable counting like this:
