Great riffs to check out during your guitar lessons for beginners

When you dream of playing guitar you probably imagine ripping through entire songs but that’s not totally necessary to have a great time. What about taking guitar lessons for beginners that focus on playing really cool riffs? An easy one for starters is La Bamba by Ritchie Valens. It’s utterly memorable and sounds fantastic and works well with an electric or acoustic guitar. If you’ve ever heard I Feel Fine by the Beatles you know it has an awesome opening riff that would actually be pretty simple to learn.
Other great riffs you can learn during your guitar lessons for beginners include Walk This Way by Aerosmith, Don’t Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult, Money by Pink Floyd, Iron Man by Black Sabbath, and Black Dog by Led Zeppelin (or almost any other Zeppelin song).
