Halloween Thing: A Riff so Awesome, It’s Scary

Halloween Pumpkin ScaryRiffs are the short repeated musical phrases that keep you coming back again and again to your favorite songs. From Suzie Q to Poker Face, a great riff can grab you by the tail and pull you in!

In today’s lesson, we’re going to check out an awesome riff I composed with the help of one of my advanced private students: 13-year-old Luke A.

The song is written in an AABA form, which means the first riff (the A-section) repeats twice, while the B-section introduces a entirely new and altogether different idea.
