Lesson 2 - Your First RIFF! // 10 Songs in 10 Days for KIDS

Welcome to LESSON 2 of my brand new series called Learn 10 songs in 10 days for KIDS! Here, we'll cover a superb song that many people would never think was so much fun to play on guitar. 

Here's how to play 'I Gotta Feeling' by The Black Eyed Peas! This song can be played on Electric OR Acoustic guitar, as can every lesson in this course!

Many will find this very different and perhaps harder than lesson 1. Rest assured that the lessons after this are more similar to lesson 1 with chords and strumming. The intention here is to get kids excited about the possibilities of what guitars can do. 

We also introduce a looper pedal, which gives us a DJ style looping fun but with guitars! A looper pedal is in now way needed at this early stage, the idea is to get you playing along with Andy and make the lesson as fun as possible. However, guitar pedals such as this are affordable and make great birthday/ Christmas gifts!

Andy's Electric Guitar tutorial for 'I Gotta Feeling'

The tutorial below is exactly the same, but I demo the song on Electric Guitar with some overdrive/ distortion provided by the amplifier. This is an older tutorial, but I've included this to show what a difference in sound there can be between acoustic and electric guitars, even when you play the same thing!
