Today’s famous riff comes to you by way of the always ripping Skid Row with their hit power ballad “I Remember You”.
In this I Remember You guitar lesson we will be taking a look at the main acoustic riff that opens the song and that also makes up a majority of the verse.
The riff is based around just two simple chords but is made much more difficult by some agile fills thrown in between the changes that requires a pretty accurate picking touch.
If you follow the picking indications that I demonstrate in the video, everything will be much easier. The key is to make the picking of those fills as economical as possible.
Of course there is the issue of having to do hammer-ons and pulls-offs on an acoustic guitar, but as long your guitar is set up well it shouldn’t be much of a problem.
If you do have a problem with any of the fills simply isolate it and practice it by itself over and over again while staying in rhythm. That kind of detailed practice is how you can overcome most technical difficulties on the guitar.
Hope you guys enjoy learning this riff from this great 80’s power ballad classic by one of my favorite bands of that era. 🙂
