This is one of my all time personal favourite guitar riffs ever! It really encapsulates everything I love about a good guitar riff, and also plays to my personal strengths as guitar player and has added to create what I see as 'my sound'. 

If you struggle with any of the techniques in this tutorial, but sure to check out my new Rock Rhythm guitar course. This course covers every single technique featured in this song in a structured way and will take you from a beginner to being able to nail this kind of tune.
