In this guitar lesson, now available on YouTube.com, Silvio Gazquez teaches a classic riff from into of “Hey You” by Pink Floyd. TAB’s for this lesson are available at GuitarControl.com.
A “riff” is the catchy part of a song that sticks in your head. One of the most recognizable guitar riffs of all time is “Smoke on the water” by Deep Purple.
In this rhythm guitar lesson, Silvio demonstrates a very popular and recognizable riff from Pink Floyd. This riff is composed of arpeggiating E minor bar chord rooted on the 5th string at the 7th fret and then by lifting the second finger it changes the chord to E sus 2, this then is moved down one whole step to the 5th fret and then a similar process is played. Silvio first plays the riff at tempo and then slows it down so you can catch all of the details of this riff and follows it up with a tasty little lick at the end for a little extra fun.
Pink Floyd was founded in 1965 in the UK. Best known for there album Dark Side of the Moon which is still a top selling album to this day. Floyd guitarist David Gilmour is regarded as one of the most influential guitarists of this time. Pink Floyd was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 and have sold over 250 million records world wide.
