Green Day – American Idiot – Play this Classic Riff!

To celebrate a summer of great music guitar lessons on the ilearntoplay site are FREE for a limited period – so register and download NOW! Seen our new online mag? ‘Offbeat’ – very irreverent, just so slightly tongue-in-cheek and very, very funny! There’s also a competition to win some Line 6 gear. Interesting fact no 1: this 2004-released title-song was the band’s first chart entry. Interesting fact no 2: in ‘The Simpsons Movie’ after Green Day dies by falling into the lethally toxic Lake Springfield, ‘American Idiot’ is played at the band’s funeral, with a close-up of the sheet music entitled ‘American Idiot – Funeral Version’. In this free 3.5 minute video, David Young shows you how to play the classic opening riff. Includes complete demos of left hand chord shapes and right hand picking patterns, and slowed down versions for easy learning. More famous ‘Classic Riffs’ are available FREE on the website at including a higher quality version of this video. Other Classic Riffs include Whole Lotta Love – Led Zeppelin Another One Bites The Dust – Queen Smoke On The Water – Deep Purple Walk This Way – Aerosmith Wonderwall – Oasis Smells Like Teen Spirit – Nirvana All Right Now – Free Sweet Child O’Mine – Guns N Roses Back in Black – AC/DC
