Claude teaches how to improvise a rock riff using the one four chord progression in the key of A in this easy guitar lesson. “You can do this with any kind of chords, power chords, major or minor chords," says Johnson, “all we are really doing is alternating between the one chord and the four chords." Claude continues by explaining how to determine the one and four chords by saying that what ever note is the root of the first chord, the four chord is on the same fret of the next higher string. “Learning this type of music theory is very useful for figuring this stuff out," says Johnson. Claude continues by playing a variety of riff ideas using power chords in a rock style and then using minor seventh chords which gives it kind of a jazz feel. Next he uses dominant seventh chords which give it a blues kind of sound. Johnson says that you can get more instruction on this chord progression and these types of chord voicing’s by checking out his course “Ultimate Beginner Guitar Course” available at
