Learn To Play 5 Beatles Guitar Riffs
This week marked the 58th anniversary of The Beatles debut single Love Me Do. Love Me Do was released in October 1962 where it got to number 17 on the UK music charts and hit number 1 in America, where it was released two years later.
No one could have imagined the impact the Beatles would have on popular music and the countless number of people they would inspire to pick up the guitar along the way.
Below I have selected five Beatles riffs that inspired me in the early days of my guitar playing, they are suitable for beginners to learn and are super fun to play. The riffs do get progressively harder as you move down the list but take it slow and don’t worry, as you can always give me a shout if you need help.
Riff 1: Ticket To Ride
Riff 2: Come Together
‘Come Together’ was released on 6th of October 1969 and can be found on the album Abbey Road.
The riff comprises of single notes and apart from a 3rd fret on the E & A strings, is played mostly on open strings.
Riff 3: In My Life
Riff 4: Paperback Writer
Riff 5: Day Tripper
I hope you enjoyed these riffs and have fun with them, if you are a member of Beginner Guitar Academy head to the riffs section of the site for more classic riffs.
Keep practicing and see you soon.
