In this rhythm guitar lesson, now available on YouTube.com, Silvio Gazquez teaches how to play the riff from shredder guitarist Nuno Bettencourt’s band Extreme “Get the Funk Out”. Silvio starts off this lesson by performing the riff at tempo with a backing track. Next Gazquez slows the riff down so you can see exactly how it’s played. Guitar TAB’s are available for this lead guitar lesson 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.
Extreme is an American rock band formed in Malden Massachusetts in 1985. The band reached the height of their commercial success in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s and classify themselves as funky metal. Over the course of their career they have released 5 studio albums and have sold over 10 million albums world wide.
