Jam over last Progression

Just wanted to show a brief video jamming over the last guitar progression we looked at. Guitar is in Drop A Tuning Down a whole step:A G C F A D. I've stuck mainly to notes from the B minor/ D Major scale. If any of the guitar licks catch your ears let me know and I can tab them out. Cheers.

Drop A Chord Progression

This is a chord progression using Drop A Tuning Down a whole step:A G C F A D. I thought this progression sounded cool so I wanted to share it. We'll look at some guitar soloing ideas over this progression in the next post.

Drop A Guitar Riff #2

Another Drop A tuning guitar riff. Guitar is tuned from low to high A G C F A D.
This guitar riff is triplet based so three notes per beat.

Drop A Guitar Riff

Been playing in Drop A tuned down a whole step lately so I thought I'd share a guitar riff I came up with in this tuning. The guitar is tuned low to high A G C F A D. Tuned down a whole step and then drop the low E to an A note. I  use pretty heavy palm muting to keep the second section sounding a little tighter.

Capo Lick

I've been learning a few songs that use a capo. A capo is basically a movable fret that lets you use different notes as "open strings" I've used a guitar tuned down a half step for this guitar lick but capo-ed at the 4th fret. All notes in the guitar tab are as written except the open string notes are actually at the 4th fret because of the capo. The riff is all eighth notes played at a slow tempo. Let the notes bleed into each other and ring as long as possible. Cheers.

Drop D Rhythm Guitar Riff

So I am way late to the party but have just started listening to a fabulous band you probably already know - "Snow Patrol". Loving their last album from 2011 and just starting to delve into their back catalog. Some great passionate and heartfelt music. I found a song called "Hands Open" which has a some cool fairly simple riffs in drop d tuning. After I learned the song I came up with this riff. The only real similarity is the tuning however. You should totally check out the song though its fun to play. Hope you dig the riff. If you have problems following the video I can tab it out if requested. The tracking on the video is a bit weird but the audio should be cool.

Funk / Fusion Guitar Lick

Here's a little funk/ fusion guitar lick. Standard tuning with capo on the fourth fret but there are no open strings so you don't need. It does tend to alter the feel higher up the neck so I'd try it if you got it.

Watch the rests in the music and tab notation and listen to the video to get a feel for the guitar and backing rhythm.
